Boy that Treadmaster stuff looks like alot of work that could easily get screwed up. Besides Larry and Sue is there anyone else out there that has tried this stuff? How does it look?

Treadmaster examples

Go to Google and under image search look up "treadmaster". You'll find many pictures and some links to restorations.

I (with great effort and not a few blisters) peeled/scraped off some old, weathered, "fugly" treadmaster style non skid before repainting the cockpit sole with interdeck....

After that I'm not sure that treadmaster style non skid is worth the effort, nor particularly long lasting.

Thanks Faster, that is the reply I was looking for.... Not that Treadmaster wouldnt be good, its just that I believe painting the correct way looks better... after all, dont all our boats come painted?

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.
