Default SeaDek removal on non-skid

How hard is it to remove SeaDek from non-skid? Boat is a 2006 Sea Cat. Thinking about installing some SeaDek between leaning post and console but want to be able to remove if needed later.

I had to change some pieces on my boat, diamond non skid. The sheet peels back readily. Then scraped it with plastic scraper and paint thinner. Last was acetone and scrub brush, took about 20 minutes to do 4 square feet.

It depends on the boat but its not as bad as you hear.

You could probably use a blow dryer to heat it up and peel it of. I haven't tried but that's how I remove my gopro mounts which use 3m adhesive.

I just finished removing sea dek from a Maverick HPX 17. I found it to be easier to remove once the heat of the day had a chance to warm up the material. I suspect you could use a heat gun as well aa another poster had suggested.

I would be careful using a heat gun on fiberglass. A good hair dryer might be slower but safer depending on how low you can turn the heat gun.

You could go with 9mm thick marine mat. They offer a snap down product and use snaps to secure.

Buy the SeaDek helm pad. Buy another piece of sheet material. Stick them together.

Have been thinking about doing this myself, but couldn’t figure out a good piece to stick it to. Any suggestions? Was hoping to find something a little heavier so it wouldn’t blow away if I wasn’t standing on it.

I can make you one with an 1/8th in thick rubber backing. I wouldn't trailer it but otherwise pretty stable.

They make the sheet material. You have to cut it to fit the helm pad or stick it to the pad and then trim it. It adds to the expense for a helm pad but you can remove it to clean it. I never have a problem underway. I do secure it while trailering.
