Re: Companionway Ladder Non-skid
Well, finally got around to working on the companionway ladder. I let aesthetics rule the day.
I liked Tom's ladder with the raised strips, but I was limited to the dados that existed in my treads. I also happened to have a nice piece of quilted (figured) maple that has been kicking around for a few years. The maple contrasts nicely with the teak, so .... I'll still need some type of non-skid. I'm going to have a look at some 'clear stick on strips that WM has, but likely I'll go with an additive to the varnish.
I've got a bit of gypsum sand, any reason that wouldn't work? A light sprinkle on the second coat, followed by at least one more coat?
