Marine plywood coated in west systems epoxy,while epoxy was still wet I sprinkled fine crushed walnut shells,after it cured I wire brushed off by hand any loose shells,then vacuum and coat in a 2 part lp paint of your choice..twice.
Just a few weeks ago i applied TotalTread from Total Boat on my Parker 1801 and i love it. If you can paint, you can use this. Prep work is key to a good finish. Masking off areas you dont want nonskid on will really make the work pop.
Its $79 a gallon and i used maybe a 1/4 gallon for my 1801 just to give you an idea. oh and that was two light coats. It held up really well in rough seas and never once did we feel any slippage.
Hey guys just a reminder that the contest is over in less than a month. If you'd like to enter the contest and get your boat deck coated for me just send me an email and explain why and a picture of your boat. If you have a big boat and just want the cockpit coated that's fine too.
I just had SeaDek do my coaming pads, looks great, while I was in their shop I looked over some of the stuff they did, really great stuff.
For those concerned with cost, they gave me a estimate $1400 to do my rear deck (28 ft boat).
Anyone know if the Kiwigrip is stain resistant? I have a hard time getting blood and dirt stains off of my Parker deck, plus it's worn down...thinking of going with the Kiwi. Any info would be appreciated!
