Kiwigrip

Anyone tried this stuff? Need to redo our non skid thinking this might be the way to go?

Re: Kiwigrip

My neighbor applied to anchor locker and cockpit sole about a month ago. Turned out great and nearly match the existing light blue Hunter deck. He did a very careful job of masking and used their roller. Kiwigrip completely covered large spider-cracking that came from dropping the anchor.

Re: Kiwigrip

I follow this blog where the couple are doing a refit and used it on their deck. Turned out really good.

Re: Kiwigrip

We used a product called Tuffcoat on two of our boats now and it has held up extremely well and is truly non skid. It's also easier on bare feet and knees than Kiwigrip. Here's our installation, The Trawler Beach House: Transforming The Non Skid Decks . Chuck

Re: Kiwigrip

We recently used Kiwigrip on our side decks, and have nothing but good things to say about it. It goes down super easy and looks great though it can be hard to keep clean. Only piece of advice is to pull the tape for the edge ASAP otherwise you wont get a sharp edge.
Awl or Nothing

Re: Kiwigrip

Used it on our 1966 Pearson. The stuff went on easy and looks good. I would recommend it.

Re: Kiwigrip

I redid my nonskid 5 years ago with Kiwigrip (light gray) on my 1977 Bristol 29.9, I'm very happy with the product. It was easy to use and has held up realy great. I've used other nonskid paints, and non of them last or look as good. I would use it again if I was to do it over.

Re: Kiwigrip

There was a thread sometime back re KiwiGrip and from memory pretty much all the feedback was positive.

Re: Kiwigrip

I just did my decks, I think I skimped too much with it, but I'm satisfied. It goes on real nice, but watch the temperatures outside, if its too hot it'll start to clump on the roller.

I do find it a bit slippery barefoot when the deck is real wet but like I said, I don't think i applied it thick enough.
