inexpensive floor option

Buddy of mine got me a couple of these pallet platforms. Very light and stiff enough to stand on. They just happen to fit my 14' raft perfectly, at least in the captain's bay.

Should be great for fishing on easy water. Not planning on attaching them in any way.

Plastic? Any idea where they came from?

Yep, some kind of plastic. I've seen stacks of them where they keep the pallets. Maybe 3/4" thick. super light.

I'm going to cut one to fit the curve of the floor. 2 of them will completely floor the raft, except the very ends. Hoping the cut plastic won't be too sharp. May be a job for some Gorilla tape.

I'm googling away and haven't been able to find similar. I guess you are actually saying they are inexpensive if we see some and steal them? Lol

Not encouraging larceny. Just ask the store manager if he can spare a couple.

found something similar - but can't for the life of me read a word of the website...palet plastik lantai -Lantai plastik-ID produk:149161028-indonesian.alibaba.com

I'll keep looking, kind of interesting maybe... I'm guessing they're slippery? I.e. I'm thinking more trailer decking than boat floor.

Sorry pbr, I just thought you were being vague and wasn't piecing together where you were saying to get these. Never seen them around here.

yeah, I've never seen anything like that in my travels. While I'm excited for pbr on his score, I don't think we've found the future of raft flooring. Rat farts.
