Masking corners for non-skid

Hey folks,
Just thought I'd share this hot tip from one of my dock-mates. It worked great.
I have an old Cal 29 with about 3-4 different corner radiuses for the non-skid. So I bought a handful of different sized washers and they worked perfectly. See attached.

Good idea.. I've always used various yogurt tubs, coins, soup cans etc whatever's at hand. But the washer idea would be a lot easier to trace.

Looks like a good result.

Re: Masking corners for non-skid

Is it okay to use an exacto knife on Gelcoat? How careful should one be?

Re: Masking corners for non-skid

I just used a small artists brush for the corners. Michaels is a great place to buy them, btw!

Re: Masking corners for non-skid



Jl you ave great taste in boats

I tend to just go real careful when cutting and remember by the time your masking and painting the deck the boats are wee bit rough around the edges

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
