Default EVA faux teak flooring installed

A few weeks back I asked about the EVA faux teak flooring to see how people liked it.
Thought I would post my opinion as I installed it yesterday. Of course we will have to see how it holds up over time but overall i'm very happy with the look and feel. It's soft so very comfortable on the feet.
I bought two sheets of SeaDek knock off EVA flooring off Ebay for about $139 a sheet (47" x 94").
I measured and precut (utility knife cuts it well) everything in my shop and then cleaned the floor with acetone. it's a peel and stick product so install went easy.
Two tips for those looking to do this.

1. the biggest is remember you want the lines to run evenly up the boat. Would be a real bummer to cut it all and forgot that part.

2. similar to sticking vinyl graphics in technique. gently cut the backing paper down the middle. use painters tape to hold down one side once aligned. Then peel backing on opposite side of taped edge and stick that part. Then lift material and pull backing off other half and stick. roll it out with a hand laminate or floor roller and done.

That looks great. We have been discussing doing the same thing. We've been concerned about being able to cut straight lines and smooth radius'. How was it to cut?

Couldn't be easier to cut.
Straight edge and utility knife.
Radius corners with quality sissors.

Thanks. I was really tired of the ugly stained carpet and how it held water.
Another boat at our dock had it I just found out.
New boat then and 3 years old now. Still looks good but that may be a higher quality product.
For under $280 I figured it's worth a shot.
