    For a second I thought you were going to Paint the deck of the genie eye! Probably your House deck. Usew that stuff they got at home depot. The expensive brand.

    I've got some remnant kicking around as well, not sure how much. Yours for free if you don't have a huge area to cover.

    PYI is the company that imports it, and interestingly their US base is in Lynwood Wa.

    from the Kiwigrip website...

    How much will a liter cover?
    Stock Answer: Each liter covers 2 square meters (about 20 square feet). Application is very thick – about 2 to 3 mm (a little less than 1/8 inch). A 4-liter pail will generally be sufficient for a 30 foot sailboat.

    Better, though less helpful, answer: It depends. Coverage depends completely on application thickness and on the underlying surface. KiwiGrip offers a "miniature mountain range" texture with myriad peaks and valleys. A thick application (3mm) will offer tall peaks and deep valleys, yielding a very aggressive non-skid. A moderate application (2mm) will afford a more moderate texture, and a thin application will give a gentle result – suitable for cockpit seats.

    The plot thickens. If you’re applying over a high-profile, but worn, non-skid, some of your KiwiGrip will sink into the valleys of your current non-skid. Filling these valleys consumes your precious KiwiGrip while offering little in return. This reduces coverage. Here are a few data points and a couple of buying strategies to consider:

    • A Catalina 30 sailboat will typically need 4 Liters (a Gallon) with no leftovers
    • One customer used 5 liters on his 23 foot sailboat – very thick application.
    • Another application used 10 liters on a 48 foot center-cockpit sailboat to do cabintops, side decks, foredeck and aft deck, but not cockpit. Moderately thin application over smooth surface.
    If you’re having trouble deciding how much to buy, consider: (a) Buy too much and return unopened tins for a refund. Your risk is the shipping cost and your local dealer's return policy. (b) Make your best guess and buy more if you need it. Your risk is repeating your setup and cleanup. (c) Same as (a) but keep left-overs for repairs and alterations, or sell to your neighbor who now loves your boat more than his own.

    You take it to the paint Store they add color no more than 3%. It's on kiwi grips Web page. You can only buy kiwi in grip in 3 or 4 colors.
