I am buying a 16' Jon Boat that needs a new floor. It has marine ply now but I would like to replace it and the foam under it. Please any suggestions for replacement materials.


Thanks

Inexpensive - lay down foam and put marine ply back over it.

Expensive - lay down foam and put aluminum over it.

Good luck and share some pics of the project.

I say go with aluminum for the decking.
We just did a buddies jon boat completely all aluminum.
No more wood at all.

I (personally) would stay away from the two part pour foam and the spray foam and if you read other boat repai forums you will know why.

The kind I like is the type that feels like a pool noodle. These can be bought in sheets that can be cut to size and once again, in my personal opinion, a much better choice for under the floor where water will accumulate.
