Sea Deck / Gator Step Question

Recommended Posts

ahopkinsVTX

Does anyone have pictures of sea deck or gator step flooring in their boat next to the grey carpeted seat bases/side panels?

Thinking of taking on a pretty big project this winter and was wondering what it looks like up next to the carpet before I decide one way or another.

@thtrog Thank you! Do you have any other pictures close to the kick panel or the bow step? In the side panels of the response I don't think we will have more of a seam like those areas rather then the rounded joints of yours!

The grey sea deck seems to match the carpet color quite well though?

ahopkinsTXi ....... great idea  :thumbup:

When you start this project keep me / us posted, with all the details with pics, kinda been on my mined to. Oh the work though! Lol.... this is a great idea and looking forward to seeing the end result should you persue your endevours. Although I keep my carpet as clean as possible,  no shoes,  rise your feet b4 getting on board, seasons end wash etc. it's the one thing that's starting to show it's age a bit, and I've been thinking in this direction to.

Realy like the look of the Sea Deck!

Oh waite a Minute!  Didn't you say you where upgrading into a 2017 Response. .. lol... :Tease3:

on a side note, wounder if Sea Deck will be in the new Response?

The SD is lighter, but pretty close depending on lighting.

That's pretty close! And I'm sure will look good unless someone is really really looking at it. 

@Dare2goBare no deposit on a 17 right now. And I'll keep everyone updated on our project if it goes through.

@ahopkinsTXi please do it and take notes and pics!!  This is on my list-to-do next winter.  One thing that concerns me is the floor panel/section over the fuel tank.  My panel is that honeycomb aluminum stuff and obviously the surrounding floor is fiberglass, I'm concerned with how I can make the edges rounded and look like a factory install.  Do you have a section like on your boat and if so what's your plan for that?

I do have that section and I'm not 100% sure yet. There are a few open issues I need to solve first. I am 99% sure the floor under the carpet is not finished fiber glass. 

I'm going to try to get the boat templated next week, and hopefully that will clear up a few issues. 

Also, long story, but there is a very good chance I won't have the ability to take pictures of this.
