Re: Non-skid worn down to fiberglass

So there must not be much hardware considering your problem is on the non skid, clean the area, tape it off and put a coat of Kiwi grip on it, quick, easy and fairly inexpensive. Would recomend this product. Used it on all non skid topside of my 32' and am very pleased

Re: Non-skid worn down to fiberglass

It is hard to tell from the pictures if the fiberglass that you see is the layup for the deck or some sort of a backing for the nonskid. I am thinking maybe they used prefab sheets to redo the nonskid at some point, I would not be surprised if there is gelcoat under those fibers. If that is the case, the issue is purely cosmetic. Even if the exposed fibers are part of the deck pay up, you should be able to seal with with a new coat of nonskid paint as suggested.
