    Jeremy, I am sure someone has used bed liner as I have seen previous post on the board about the same topic. Just wanted to throw a couple of things at you...it will add weight to your boat, reducing your carrying capacity. In addition, any thing dropped on the deck will be relayed through the water like a telegraph. My personal choice would be to get some rubber matting and put between the ribs. It would cushion any noise and is light weight. However, it's your choice. I think in a small pickup, it costs something like $450.00 for a spray in lining. Your boat will probably have more square feet, increasing the price a small amount.

    They put some of that crap on the boat I bought. It was all chiped out and the pieces that were in there were harder than heck to get out. I finaly did get it out though.

    I Don't have It In My Boat But I Have The Spray-On Kind On The Deck Of My Swamp Buggy, Which Has An Aluminum Deck & It holds Up Great. The Noise Is Deadened When We Walk Around And It Keps The Heat Off The Dog's feet.

    The First Time I Applied It I Was NOT Told To Leave The Metal Raw. I Thought I Would Do As I Was Always Taught & Put Zinc Chromate Primer On It. BIG Mistake, it Wouldn't Adhere For Crap:angry: ,Live-N-Learn, Elliot

    I've used it twice neither time did it come out as expected. Very hard to lay down right have to prep the area really good. I used the herculiner very stinky and sticky I wouldn't do it again at least not for my truck. I did it on a jeep not sure how it would work on a boat. I ended up using grip tape for my boat when I had it. The same type of grip tape that skate boarders use. Just my 2cents

    I have researched it quite a bit.
    Without getting into all the details about it I will just say it is not a good idea.
    Marine paint is cheap enough.

    What I find amusing is people will pay a buck for a 20 oz bottle of water and not complain (6.40 a gallon) then complain about the $2.80 gasoline. Like filtering or treating water is twice as costly as refining gasoline.
