Ways To Customize Your Boat

If you own a boat, then you know that it can look very plain and boring unless you decide to do a little customization. There are quite a few things that can be done to a boat of any size so that it has the personality that matches yours.

Flooring
One of the first things that you can do to change the look of your boat is to add marine flooring. You want to get something that is non-slip because the feet and shoes will likely be wet while you’re on board. A blue or green color would match the function of the boat, giving an impression of being on the ocean or a large body of water even if you’re only cleaning the boat before taking it out. You can also add a few pictures to the floor that look like fish and other aquatic items so that it resembles a glass bottom boat. Another idea is to add carpet instead of a tile flooring or one that is slippery. You will need to keep the carpet dry so that mold and mildew don’t develop, but it might be a little more comfortable to walk on instead of a slippery surface.

Lighting
The lights are important on a boat, especially if you plan on having it on the water at night. You want others to see you, and there are often laws that require that you have certain colors on the boat depending on where the boat is viewed by others on the water. While you might not be able to change the color of the lights, you can usually change the shape and the overall design. You can add lights that have an elegant appearance or those that are modern, recessed in the boat so that they can’t be seen. If the boat has a housing area, then consider adding hanging lights to give it more of a pleasant feeling instead of an ordinary boat.

Accessories
One of the things that you can add to the boat is a rod mount. This will benefit you if you go fishing on a regular basis. You can mount a few holders on the side, but make sure you limit the number so that the side isn’t too heavy when the rods are in place. Seats are another idea. You want passengers to be comfortable, so consider something that is soft with a seat belt so that everyone is protected while on the water. Cup holders are another option for those who enjoy a little relaxation while on the water.
