I'm actually doing this project as well. I'm using kiwi-grip (thinking I should have maybe have just used paint because that kiwi-grip is pricey). I did also go Starboard to replace the gas tank cover. The downside is I wanted to apply kiwigrip to it, but everything I read says nothing is going to stick to that. i was using kiwi grip because I was hoping to use my boat with and without the deckadence. With a bunch of kids or stuff just pull the mat and have kiwigrip floors (My friend does this with his removeable carpet and I like it). So I'm kind of bummed i went the HDPE route, it was pricey for the 1" it was ~350 bucks for that size. I also replaced the center bilge access with 3/4" HDPE.

 

I'm also going back and forth on the rear lockers, under front seats, and passenger (battery) compartment whether to go kiwigrip or go with more of a bedliner style coating.

Another reason marine ply way to go in my opinion. Only down side I found was I had to buy a full sheet here in San Diego and it was like 140 or something. But really easy to work with and have anything apply to it. The strength is really good too. I weigh 230 and it doesn’t budge when I step on it. 
 

For the lockers and seat bases I can’t recommend Ozite enough. I will take pictures in a few days as I will be done with a complete overhaul of boat and trailer.  Can only take credit for the work and the money.  I lurked in a bunch of these threads and was inspired or learned how to do most from boaters like Boz and so many others on here. Much appreciated and saved thousands of dollars and learned so much.

I finally could not handle the mildew smell of the factory oem carpet. Plus it was matted down and looked terrible after 170 hours.   I had deckadence in my last boat for two years and really was sold

Just finished up our project tonight.    We did snaps, and glad we did because on the floor of our 22VLX it moved around quite easily.  Our piece would not be as large or heavy as some of the bigger b

While I personally would  now never use wood there, if you need an option, look at Baltic Birch Plywood.  It is sold in various widths like 12x36" etc and the stuff is awesome.  I needed to replace the floor battens in my Zodiac and it was super cheap.  The Interlux marine paint cost way more than the wood.

Awesome job!!  Wondering how you got the material to stick on picture 2 tho... you must have gotten a lot in your hair!  :-)

When I was MUCH younger, I helped my brother refloor his boat which had rotted out after his father in law crashed it on rocks in Lake Erie.   It was a BEAUTIFUL 1974 Silverline Comoro.  It was a closed bow boat, and I got the job of gluing down the floor in under the bow.    When I came out, I was higher than a kite (even for a teenager in the 70's), and had a headache for about a week.   Probably explains a lot about me.   I tell that story to say I have SOME perspective on how much work that is, and what it must have taken to do such a nice job on it.   Cant wait to see pics with the floor mat in it.

I just did my MXZ for $205.  I only needed the 4x10 sheet.  Feels great and was easy to install.

What the bot is going on in here?

I don't think these are bots, rather people that have no life and get paid for hits from their forum posts. Sad.

Hi all, does anyone have the Autocad template file (.dxf file) for the carpets for a 2015 22 VLX?
