I wouldn't trust it in a flip, but I do trust it to leave out in the Lochsa rain overnight.
Isn’t Lochsa rain and flipping essentially the same thing? ��

The only long term issue I see with a yoga mat versus sea deck or similar, is UV resistance. But I think it would work well for awhile.

Glue or velcro? Trying to decide which way to go.

Contact cement has held up on my seat for years.

For dry storage, I've been using 2 of these for about a dozen years - light, tough, cheap, 100% waterproof (o-ring seal with screw top lid). Do a google search for Vittle Vault - they are easy to find at pet supply shops. They come in a couple of sizes. Only downside vs metal cans and dryboxes is they don't allow you to practice first aid or leave those cool scars when you bang your knee or hand into them.

+1 on the Vittles Vaults. And to the original question - I have used decent quality yoga mats and contact cement for decks on one of my rafts for years and they have held up and stayed glued amazingly well, even with walking on them and the occasional dog.

Di, any suggestions on "good" yoga mats?
All the ones I've seen at Walmart/Target are the thinner "waffle" corrugated mats.

Are there any out there more like EVA/seadek/minicell?
