Swim platform SeaDeck or GatorStep

I'm in the process of replacing the nasty black swim platform pad on our boat.
Which have you used or prefer.

    Hi @LZywicki1

    I/We did SeaDek. It was an easy DIY. I also sent SeaDek a blank/tracing of the gunwale as it is a bit slippery and somewhat updates the boat a bit to what the newer boats look like. It's been 3 years and still very happy with how well it's held up. No issues.

    I used Seadek to replace the platform pad on my 2010 Malibu Response.
    Hardest part was to remove the old pad.
    Seadek has (or had) a few Malibu models on their website and I just ordered the one for my boat.
    At over $350 it wasn’t cheap but fit (and finish) was perfect.

    We used GatorStep for some gunnel and bow pads they were good to work with. Very similar to sea deck.

    Cheap stuff off Amazon. Held up very well. Been over a year now.

    @TustinTom. Did your platform come with a one or two piece pad?
    @RAWSki. Is there mush of a difference in the feel.

    Larry not mush at all ;-). Hard to tell unless the two products are side by side.

    It is a 1 piece platform pad. Measured twice, applied once. LOL Actually quite easy if you follow their instructions. I ordered it from their stock Malibu platform pad with wedge hole cut-out.

    @Wish Got a link for the Amazon stuff?

    My perfect world option would be decadence floor inside the boat and seadeck on the swim platform and other horizontal surfaces(rails, walk-throughs). My boat has seadeck on the floor throughout. Looks great clean, but shows dirt quickly and dramatically- although easy to clean too.
