Default Navy SEAL Boat Decking

Is anyone looking at this material for racing or pleasure performance boats?

PROJECT:

Reduce the rate of Navy SEAL injuries due to g-forces experienced in high speed Navy SEAL boats.

Increase mission effectiveness by developing better shock mitigating boat decking materials.
RESULT: A high impact, extremely rugged, anti-slip and flame-retardant SKYDEX™ boat decking material that reduces shock by 90% compared to current boat decking materials. SKYDEX™ boat decking technology is now in use by several US Special Operations forces and is being tested by several other militaries, including the British Royal Navy, Canadian Coast Guard and Australian Navy.

I saw this stuff at the Miami show.. looks like some cool stuff... Interlocking panels that you can cover your entire cockpit with. Can cut it with a standard razorblade.
