Linex or Herculiner on boat?

A few days ago I saw a program where these products were used to seal a concrete block wall on both sides and a car bomb was exploded against the wall. The concrete within was shattered, but the structure was still standing and shape was retained. They did a number of other impact and explosives tests. It was pretty impressive.


Any experience with using Linex or Herculiner on the hull of a boat for a gripping surface?

Any thoughts on these liners used on deck as reinforcement?

From what I understand you can get it in most any color you want, it cures in about 24 hours, and has a good warranty.

I put Herculiner in my truck and wouldn't recommend it for the boat. It's very rough and will abrade skin swiftly. I've badly scraped my hands just grabbing something out of the bed.
