Cheers Bruce! The light grey I viewed on the net looked allot lighter than that. That's what was putting me off. The only colour tread master I have ever seen used 'in the flesh' is blue. And I couldn't live with that.

If your going to that expence then why put teak down? or even artifical stuff.

Me, I like non slip paint, cheap, easy to touch up and doesn't fade. Oh and you can walk on it with bare feet. 20 ish for 3/4L tin is all you will need for two coats.

I think it was about 300 or so for the whole thing, laid myself. Teak is no use for my useage, its treated as a working boat for diving sometimes and rubber decking stops kit moving about plus doesn't get scratched and damaged.
I walk about in bare feet rarely, its too cold up here, but I prefer the hard wearing finish of the treadmaster. I looked at other equivalent sheeting materials but none were cheaper or as easy to get hold of.
I fitted it to a much smaller RIB I put together a few years ago and now would fit it to any RIB I put together as IMO its worth it, but it wouldn't be in everyones eyes

Bruce, I'm with you re treadmaster! Using the two part adhesive, do you mask off the edge of the shape of the treadmaster sheet on the deck, as shown on the treadmaster web site? Do you think that I would get away with wiping off the excess glue after having rollered the treadmaster down? I'll be a first timer applying this stuff, so any tips gratefully received
