    If you have dogs on your boat I would think hard about seadek. Not horrible but my dogs certainly put some claw marks in mine.. just fyi.

    I went with a light gray on mine. It cleans up quite nicely with simple green when it does get dirty. Looks like brand new after a few minutes of effort...

    I went with beige and holly lines (white) and yea it gets dirty but it’s flooring and on a boat.. It’s super easy to clean though. Like anything, it needs love every once in a while.

    I recently had Seadek installed on my boat .It really adds to the look of the boat and it is comfortable to walk on.On the negative side it is a very soft product that will damage very easily.If you drop an object on the Seadek it will cause damage.In my case I dropped a seat cushion and it resulted in a dent in the Seadek.It is not a durable product .Just my opinion

    Thanks for your input. I've scanned online for pics of foam padding with white or light colored lines and could only come up with this example. I really like it! My top color will be a bit darker though.

    I'm light grey and white. I literally clean mine with water. It does get dirty and needs cleaning after any activity. That's mostly because we are close to final final on some days, of mostly private traffic, which gives us an exhaust residue on the docks and walkways. So everyone that gets on board tracks the residue. I use a low power pressure washer, and do the entire cockpit and platform in about 10 minutes without any cleaning products. The white is always white, and the grey always looks brand new.

    Given your experience, if I use my boat for diving with my buds, do you think this stuff would get destroyed by scuba tanks?

    Tanks will leave a dent for a while but they should go away. You just want to be careful not to tear the floor with dragging a tank across it...

    Would definitely go with the black stripes! My opinion
