Alternatives to Treadmaster

I will probably need to redo the anti-slip on my 1979 P 10M. I like the Treadmaster stuff, but the cost is outrageous. I've seen prices around $10/ft2. Does anyone know of lower source cost. If not, is there other options aside from painting or re-gelling?

The adhesive non-skid strips...but it'll look like hell and won't last very long. Basically, you've got only three choices... a paint or applied antiskid surface, re-doing the gelcoat, or treadmaster.... The paint is probably the simplest and least expensive, however, it is probably the least appealing in appearance. Treadmaster is probably the best compromise of price and appearance... re-gelcoating is going to be pretty expensive.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I am repairing and repainting my decks as well, which will include the non-skid. If I go with treadmaster, will I have to sand down my gelcoat a bit to knock down what texture is left, prior to applying the new?

A few weeks back, we were talking about this product in this thread.

kiwi grip non-skid

I was very interested in the product at the time and from the pictures I've seen, looked very easy to do and had a nice end result.


Edit: I replaced the link with the correct one

boatyards have been using uspaintsawlgrip with uspaintskidtex for years and it looks great almost all new custom race and cruise boats have it. the stuff is pricey but IMHO contrary to what someone said earlier, it looks good (HInckley rybovich, Post, hogden, palmer johnson. and unlike other things(treadmaster not include) it will not harm the value of your boat and is easy to fix, should you have some sort of mis-hap
