 I have a glass boat but I put one of those foam square clip together mats you get from Kmart at my helm. Makes the long drives less fatiguing.

 I put soft Eva mat then carpeted it and it works a treat, takes the stress away form the feet, knees and back.
Went with a yoga type material from Clarke rubber. Bout $50 to do the driver and passenger sides. held up well over the last few years.

boat mats

Thu, 2020-09-03 10:02

 I use these on my boat, they are super comfortable under foot and save your back on a long run. The picture layer on top is only a thin piece of lycra type material that peels off after about 3 months so it ends up a white mat.

This set I'm on are about 2 years old and live in the boat, they will need replacing soon as they mat material starts to break down.
