    Just got a quote on MarineMat for my 340 and was wondering if it was worth an extra $500 to get 9mm thickness vs 6mm? Is there a big difference?

    How big is the section? How fast do you want it to wear out? I’d keep my $500 for fuel.

    Get the thicker mat only at the helm.

    Definitely recommend the thicker stuff if you can swing it. It will wear better long term.

    Any issues with pets - specifically a dog’s nails that could scratch the mat or tear it?

    Normal dog traffic doubtful.
