    Do you remember these from the 70s? My family had several, lasted many years in the doorway.

    I have one in my kitchen.

    They would be grand in a tent. They are tough and easy to clean.

    My friend has a whole stash and I was wondering if anyone would like me to bring them to the Moot? His are mostly red with a few black lines, I recall, though some may be like the depicted.

    I would be asking about £25. Or maybe trade for something?

    I remember them, plastic was quite the thing, eh?

    Might last well in a doorway, does much better in marine environments though.

    Yup, pretty much bombproof though they do fade in the UV eventualy (after many, many years)

    I imagine they would be good in a boat too.

    Slippery as hell if you get fish blood or slime between the mat and deck.
    I know from experience. Thought it would be a good idea as easily cleaned.

    Inside a cabin coarse coir is better.
