I've got a Sea Ark 1872 open boat with nothing in it but the back bench, it's tiller steering. I'm contemplating swapping to a center console set up but want to change out the old wood flooring prior to doing that (and probably even if I don't swap).
My question is what have people used for flooring material? I've looked into having Silver Streak put in treadplate, but it's really more than I want to spend (~$1200). Dealer doesn't order the Sea Ark treadplate floors aftermarket. Has anyone tried putting in some type of PVC sheeting or something else? Cheaper aluminum? Suggestions?
