Default Rhino Lining Interior Boat floor

Hi
Has anyone done this? I'm thinking of using the product purchased from cabelas or a do it yourself kit
I need to repaint my boat floor and I thought maybe a non slip rino lining might be a better option.

Thanks

I had the diamond plate floor and deck on my last boat shot with X-liner. I think it worked well. It was almost impossible to skuff and it also was good for sound deadening. I used the boat a lot for duck hunting and it cleaned up well and perhaps even gave a little insulation from the metal making it better for the dog. - Johnny

I have it on a NR Seahawk and I love it. I am not sure the brand NR used I ordered my boat with Al floors and the bed liner material but it is great. Nothing ever shifts when trailering or boating. My last boat was fiberglass and anything on the deck slid everywhere when trailering or in a swell.

I had the dealer in Clackamas apply it to my rear cockpit on my Seahawk OS about 2 years ago. I love that stuff. I use a high pressure washer on it and it cleans up very well. I also think, as stated above it helps keep the noise and heat down as well.
I recommend that you have a factory authorized dealer install it. Just for the warranty. Once that stuff is on there it's for good. Just my 2 cents worth.

I've had it in my boat for almost 10 years now. There is a lot to like about it. Only downside is that it is very heavy when applied thick like it should be. It probably weighs a couple hundred pounds in my boat.

Just keep that in mind.

I wouldn't suggest Cabela's product. I have it in a few of my boat shelves and after two years it's already flaking off...

I used some that came in a rattle can , took alot of cans , it has held up well,by the way it was applied to a glass boat, I just bought a 16 ft Smoker sled and the last owner used the Cabels non skid ,and its peeling real bad ,rember painting is all about the prep work ....mike

I have a buddy that owns a Line-X business. Heard they now have a product line where they add Kevlar fibers to the coating and make many colors from tan, to red. I will talk to him and find out the details.

Spoke with the local Line-X dealer, the kevlar line is called Line-X Xtra, it can be applied in any color, and is a second layer over original Line-X. It can be applied over old Line-X, but more cleaning/prep is involved. The new stuff is supposed to be more fade resistant,as well as tougher. I felt some samples and it feels slightly slicker than the original, but the amount is very small. This stuff is even resistant to MEK, 10% sulfuric Acid, and more. Down side to the kevlar stuff is it is a second coat, so it is going to weigh more.

Does that Line X with the Kevlar cost any more than the old version?
I wasn't really interested in the Line X brand due to its more slick surface
The added strength to the boat by coating it with a Kevlar based lining sure is intriguing especially for a older boat.

Thanks

Yes it costs more, you have the cost of the original coating, which is the base layer, and the cost of the top coat which has the kevlar. The dealer I talked to said he has done approximately 50 boats in the last 5 years, none with the kevlar since it is new.
