Just finished doing my deck with Durabak, very happy with results. Heard it holds up very well, I'll know better about that at the end of the year.

I'm getting ready to roll on some Tuff Coat from Cabelas. A buddy of mine used it on a skiff he built and had only good things to say about it.

I've got two years on Interdeck by Interlux, easy to apply and the right texture for me, barefoot friendly and does not hold dirt/stains.

I have a full season on Durabak on the cockpit floor, the gunnels, and all the way around including the foredeck. Very nice and it still looks like the day I put it on. Very easy on the feet AND equipment because its basically rubber.

I used Awlgrip GripTex Fine and coarse mixed and mixed with Interlux perfection. It absorbs the paint vs being like sand. It was a little rough on knees but ideal for my motor bracket platform.

Do you use this instead of gelcoat? I need to do my cockpit and wonder if this is the way to go as opposed to gelcoat.

Default Durabak

Used it on my 17 whaler last season. It works well. It is interesting stuff, has a rough feel to the touch but when you walk on it, it has a "rubbery/cushion" feel.

I have 1 gal of blue if you want to buy it.
PM or email me.

Have used Durabak 18 from Cote-L a few times. The stuff is fantastic. Easy application, looks great, works great....Very good customer service as well

Just got done building a swim platform and rebuilt the cockpit deck panels. I used KIWI-Grip for the first time and it came out fanstatic. I was able to add tint to it to get a perfect color match.

Great job! I wish you had posted a step by step. Although I still probably couldn't do it!

Moreover

Although I've done many repairs during my boating years this was my fist attempt at a swim platform and custom graphics. I believe anyone can do it if they are willing to try and have patience.

Don't want to hijack this thread so here is a Link to a projects forum I put some added info in.

Default Kiwi-grip

I ordered a qtr and coated a pice of plywood to try it out. Seems great but it feels soft. Just wondering how it will hold up. Anyone have a season or two with this product?

3 seasons on Interdeck- looks the same as day 1. A qt was only 40.00. Took 3 hrs including a light sanding and taping. Real easy.
