Thanks for that Richard, I have never heard of these flooring squares but it sounds like what I am looking for.
Thanks again

We have recently fitted Matric versatile flooring squares (300 x 300mm) which interlock to our Hardy Fisher. These are self draining as they are supported on fine pintels which means the are really good at allowing the water to drain away. We are really pleased they do everything we hoped, giving a dry surface on deck at all times. When washing down the water goes straight through. We have left a small margin all round to allow through flow and removal of any debris. They slot easily together and can be dismantled and re-assembled.
They come in a wide range of colours, we chose the off white.

Trying to find out if anyone has fitted duckboards in the open area aft and if so what material was used etc.
At present I have fitted interlocking square rubber mats which are very good but hold any rain water in the joints of the rubber matting and underneath them.
As an aside, the boat is a Hardy Regatta with bifold doors and has a sump aft with an opening 1 dia going forward into a void under the floor of the cabins accessible via the Desmo table stand (the base of which had corroded away) so I could see into the void and dry it out. I fitted a screw in nylon bung into the front face of the sump where the 1 hole is,this will stop any ingress of water into the void.
So any thoughts on duckboards will be appreciated.
