    Just passing on a good deal that some of you might need or want!

    This isn't just for center console boat owners, but anyone who ends up standing up A LOT when driving their boat, which I do over 85% of the time.

    I was in Costco yesterday and they have a new supply of a bunch of killer thick foam rubber kitchen mats. I bought one of these exact mats last year, and put it down in front of my console and can't believe what a difference this thing makes for me while on the water....... it's insane and worth every penny!!

    Nearly every new person who rides on my boat ends up commenting about the thing once they stand on it!!

    Anyways, just letting you know that they are back in stock at Costco and come in 3 different colors and cost $19.99. By far the BEST $20 bucks I have ever spent on the boat!!!

    I don't have a picture except on my phone (which I don't know how to transfer here) so I will try and look these up on the net so you can see what these look like.

    Very similar to one of these.....

    They do also occasionally have a larger 24"x60" version as well. I didn't see the larger ones yesterday, but did a month or so ago. The smaller one fits my boat and the area in front of my center console perfect!!

    Not just for CC guys. I have one too! Time to replace it. Really helps.
    Thanks for the heads up Mike.

    Trip over? I've never even come close to tripping over this thing. The edge bevels down right to the floor. You'd have to be one major klutz to trip on this thing.

    And Crocs..... definitely not my style, and I'd probably be tripping over Fugly all day if I did wear them LOL ....... uh, no thanks!

    Plus I guarantee, this mat is way more comfortable than any pair of Crocs. :)

    To each their own. I'm not saying the mat isn't a great idea, but crocs are really pretty sweet if you don't care about style. We spend a fair amount of time fishing sails and swords in FL every winter were the weather is almost always sporty. Do a 50 mile run with a 5 foot swell at 6 seconds in a center counsel in them and you'll be a believer...

    Thanks for the input. I have seen these many times at Costco and always find myself contemplating on buying. My pride have always kept me from purchasing it as I am pretty young.

    However, I am coming into terms that your body is a investment and taking care of it now will do wonders for you later. Will pick one up sometime this week.

    Thanks. I'm doing a Costco run today. Hope my store has them.

    I'm sure it will help....but a lot of foot pain is just sore muscles. Rocking and rolling of the boat makes you use muscles in your foot that are not required on land.

    Still, standing on a cushy mat sounds good.

    Thanks for idea.

    My wife bought one for our kitchen a year or so ago. Never thought to put one on the boat especially since I always pilot the boat standing. Great idea.

    Hey Mike, how has yours held up? I bought one for the exact same purpose before last season. While comfortable, they are not very durable, mine started falling apart within a few trips, and that was not leaving it in the boat to rot in the sun.

    That's weird, because mine is doing really really well! I see some wear (just a little) which I would think should be normal after me having and using this for about a year now, but for the $20 I originally spent, I am about ready to go pick-up one or two more just to keep as reserves, as they really save me by days end.

    I pull mine out after each use and give it a quick fresh water rinse and put it in storage until the next trip. I'm totally stoked on mine!
