Anti slip

Any advice on anti slip deck covering? Don't really want to mess about with non slip paints.
Treadmaster looks good but are there any others?

Treadmaster is by far the most popular. However TBS is very popular for charter, race yachts etc as it is hardwearing. I think it can be pricy. I was recently on a 60ft Whitbread and 60ft Clipper that had TBS cut to shape, glue down then a bead of Sikaflex 291 applied around the edge. The finish was second to none, and veryyyy grippy,

Hope this helps,

Treadmaster is very good. I have fully covered the deck on all my RIBs and it seems to last forever and take a huge amount of abuse.
The only drawback is that is a bit fiddly to apply and somewhat expensive, looks good though!

My Family's boats have treadmaster on them, steps to fly bridge but my brothers sailer is covered in the stuff. My problem with treadmaster (all though it's very good) is the colours.
Remember this is an old searider. Have seen this stuff that comes as a tape. No good for doing the whole deck but wondered if anyone sold sheets of it?

Cheapest place i found last year to purchase tread master.

http://www.marinesuperstore.co.uk/po...ory=30&group=2

They sell some spray adhesive to stick it down with which is really easy to use and the job is done in minutes.

I seem to remember last year a 1.2m x 0.8m sheet costing around 35. I would spend the money and use the two part epoxy though.
Black and light grey are fine for colours although some of the others are a bit odd.

Ed,

Will this adhere to flow coat or do you have to sand down surface?

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.

Pete

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
