    Looking for feedback on using a non-slip coating in a lowe 1448MT over the aluminum floors and even the front and rear plywood decks?

    Any experience or recommendations with particular diy applied products? I haven't been able to find any kind of ratings or comparative views, so I am looking for a little help here. Currently researching Durabak, Grizzly Grip, Ultra Tuff Marine nonskid but would consider any brand.

    I used a product from Cabelas called tough-cote on a 13' gheenoe project and was very happy how it came out.

    It has rubber aggregate in it, and softens the deck under your feet tremendously. Another side benefit is that it quiets the whole boat down.

    You can use the same paint for an AL hull, but you need different primer. Also, prep is the key to it lasting!!

    That looks great. I'm looking to do something like this on my casting decks.
