A lot of companies are going that route, but what do you guys think?? I personally think it looks very classy and turns a boat from a corvette to a porsche...

I don't know, I think that would look strange and out of place. I would have to see a few to say. Are you thinking about doing your AT?

Had a friend do it on his 38 Fountain Cruiser, HOT HOT HOT as hell in the sun. He puts down rubber backed throw rugs all over the swim platform and walking areas so the skin on your feet are not left on his floor.

I do not know if it was just his brand he put down or not??

Ir works for some, but not all boats and models. There are some really hideous ones out there where it just seems so out of place.

There are others that are really well done, here's an example off the top of my head, courtesy of Jayboat.

Isnt everything relative, and taste?????

Imo a flashy bright flashy paint job and teak would collide and look like a hot mess.

Classic lines on a boat, simple paint, and teak would look bad a$$.

But at the end of the day its all personal taste right???

Paint job is kind of flashy but I'm redoing the cockpit and want to keep it plain and classy but not white

I'm not crazy about it. But I love a nice car. So I'll take a Porsche over a 'Vette any day
