Pretty sure I want to go with some type of bedliner instead of carpet as I redo the boat. Anybody else go this route and care to share advice

I haven't personally done it, but I've heard it absorbs heat big-time.. There are other alternatives that won't get as hot (nylon covering, neo-mats).. It is also permanent, and I've heard it makes simple repairs to a boat next to impossible, so once you do it there's no turning back.. I have a nylon covering in my boat and love it.. It doesn't get hot in the summer at all and has good traction

I have a Line X liner in mine( light grey) It's great and does not get hot. There's a guy in steelton,pa that sprayed it on the boat.

I was wondering about getting this done? How much did it run you if you don't mine me asking?

You can get the kits from the auto parts store and brush/roll it on yourself much cheaper. You can get diff. Colors and definitely go light. My brother did the inside of a 14 ft blue in for under $100. Only problem, he used black. It does get hot.

I put Hydro Turf camo from Gator Trax Boats in my Grizzly. It cost around $300 to do the whole boat. The stuff is awe sum and easy to work with.

I can't speak about the heat or how it would hold up on an aluminum boat, but I used the Rustoleum bed liner in the cab of my pickup. I would go that route any time. It's an epoxy paint and 2 coats held up like iron. There was just enough anti-skid mixed in the paint that I never had a problem with traction.
