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.

Re: Masking corners for non-skid

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!

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
