    I’ve got it in my cockpit and love it. Mine is held in place with Velcro instead of snaps. I love it so much that when I first put it down I thought to myself that I was going to make a template and order it for my swim platform too.
    Then I went through the season with it and changed my mind.
    It’s a fantastic product for the cockpit. Looks beautiful, easy to clean, but it gets hot as hell when in the direct sunlight.
    Way too hot for bare feet or skin.
    Not a good choice for a swim platform unless you never plan to be barefoot on it or sit on it in a bathing suit with legs dangling in the water on a hot day.
    Something to keep in mind regarding anything that you have to glue down: When doing work in the bilge I pick up the woven vinyl stuff to prevent getting grease on it or scratching or damaging it with tools or parts. I wouldn’t be able to do that if it was glued down.

    Me either. Mine has the diamond pattern weave and not slippery at all and I actually find it cooler then just gel coat. My swim platform usually stays wet when traveling and gets a good wash when I come off of plane. :)

    I like having everything covered because it keep my OCD under control ..... no more foot prints.
