This is the question that perplexes boat owners the most. Before you check out colors and styles, it is vital that you determine whether you currently have glue down flooring or a boat mat. Hopefully, this simple comparison will help you figure out which is right for you, but if you aren’t sure, please contact us and we can help guide you in the right direction!
Glue Down Marine Flooring is sold to replace boat flooring that has been glued to the boat floor. It is permanently adhered to the surface and cannot be easily removed. It must be “torn out” for replacement. New glue down marine flooring is designed to be cut on site and installed with an adhesive directly to the surface of the deck. Much of our glue down marine grade flooring is moldable for the contours of a boat and hatches but is not suitable for binding or snap-in boat mat applications.
AquaMat® Custom Fit Boat Mats are designed to lay on top of fiberglass liners and are usually held in place with snaps. They are cut to shape and bound on the edges. When you receive your new AquaMat® it will be ready to be placed directly onto your boat floor. Most of Corinthian Marine’s AquaMat® flooring utilizes our exclusive AquaLoc® backing that provides unbeatable durability and unparalleled skid and slip resistance.
