I have now glassed the deck and new transom bracket supports. Next job, flow coat .
Has anybody tied putting kiln dried sand into flow coat to to provide more grip?
The last renovation I done, I used carborundum. Grit which had excellent non slip values but was also good at tearing bare skin to shreds.

Looks good.


I had this chat with Biffer the other day and he said bird sand does really well, but you have to keep it agitated to stop it giving bald spots.

Me being lazy, I just ordered a trial size pack of anti slip granules from fascinating Finishes on Ebay to try it as they say it doesn't give bald spots. In a few days I'll know what it's like as I'll try it out on a bit of scrap GRP.

Ok let me know how you get on with it, I'm hoping to do the floor Sunday and the sides and transom Monday.
Sorry another question, do you know how to get the stippled finish in the gel which you see on all the seariders?

Hey Graham
I'm fine mate, how about yourself? Have you tested the pocket rocket yet?
We've had a couple of tasty shouts lately and I've been put on a helmsmans plan so moving onwards and upwards.
Are things getting busy your end yet?

Hi Mate
I ordered all my stuff from these guys, looking at the gelcoat rollers they don't look anything different than a standard foam radiator roller.
Suppose I could do a test patch and see what it does

If its anything like our station nothing happens for the first couple of years or so. Think they do it to ensure you're not a time waster before they start spending money on you. Congrats on the new job!

talk to them they may have a secial tool and they are quite free with advice. tThe link was to point you at the company which it seems was a tad late
