Ebay EVA decking - who has installed it? Still going strong?

Howdy Folks,

Having recently ripped the carpet up in my boat to replace the deck again, the amount of sand and just general crap the Carpet has held onto has made me wonder about the ebay EVA deck.

Has anyone purchased and installed? How is it holding up?

I have seen the stuff that Ranmar has installed and it looks great though at $220 a sheet vs $70 a sheet for the Ebay stuff...well if it doesnt suck, I know what I will be getting.

Hey mate, i went through the same thought process and then bit the bullet installed it. Its been two years of me not really looking after it and its still going. Only isssue ive found is they the white line between have worn down and can see the ply beneath. But for $160 and two year comfort i'll be replacing it with the same stuff again no doubt about it!

it does get a little hot during summer but a bucket of water fixes it. The biggest thing i love about it is the clean up. Two day old blood and ink comes off with a very little scrubbing! Rate it highly!

 Yep I used the eBay stuff and I'm happy with it and should get a few years out of it, I plan to replace every 3 years but I don't think I will have to.

 

I couldn't justify the price difference for what is essentially the same stuff

The pics on eBay show nicely curved and trimmed edges around hatches etc.

Has anyone done that, or is it a specialist job?

 I think the photos are very creative marketing. I dare say those sheets would be laser cut with a fair bit of mechanics involved between the plane jane sheet you get and the finished product pictured.
