Done Did It...!

Taped off an area for the Non Skid...Enough to cover my recore work and leave a good inch or so of original sole showing...

Kiwi Grip went on easy, and rolled in just enough texture to cover the epoxy work (which was pretty smooth in itself) Looks like I need to do a second coat of deck paint on the remaining sole to brighten things up...

Pulled the tape while the Kiwi Grip was still wet (according to directions) and and caught a good edge...Now my old bilge covers look a maybe that's where I'll invest in the Teak and Holly plywood for replacements...

A little over the "Lowbuck $100 threshold" but not by much....and I have a solid sole that looks as good as original...
