Default Shock absorbing floor matts

I am looking for a couple of good looking but functional matts for the cockpit to take the shock out of hard landings.
Any suggestions on who to contact?
Thanks in advance,
Bob

I've got two that were designed and built for military application. The company repackaged them for fishermen going offshore.

You are welcome to them.

Shock-absorbing floor mats? Never heard of such a thing. Who knew? Very cool.

At Powerboat, a shock-absorbing floor mat is me lying on the cockpit sole with either Bob Teague or John Tomlinson standing on my back.

I hear that works really well.

A shop supply company would have something similar as they are used as anti-fatigue mats for machine operators, etc. Probably only black thru them tho.

Ok, Matt, your a funny guy. If you want to go to the Caribbean with me and be my "shock absorbing floor Matt", your welcome to come along. LOL
Or you could send Kevin along again.
