I need help ! I'm looking for a company out of Jupiter FL. "Marine Innovators" they make a product called "posi-grip" a replacement nonskid that is as close as you can get to the real deal, they even custom color it for you.

I knew it sounded to good to be true.
The problem is I downloaded the artical from Practical Boating "Lay new nonskid to restore worn decks" This was a big win for me as I had just finished grinding off all the old nonskid and was ready to replace it. When I called the # ,it was disconnected and I've tried for three days to find them 411, yellow pages, searches from A-Z and I tried to contact Practical Boating without any luck.

Anyone out there heard of them or know what the deal is, or have any suggestions as to what to do. I've looked at a few other nonskid products and nothing seems right.

In a nonskid hell, as if grinding it off wasn't bad enough.

Thanks, John

Evercoat makes a product called Skid-No-More
made from acrylic latex and ground rubber. It comes in a light gray but can be tinted. It works very well and should be available from most marine dealers.

The thing about this "Posi-grip" was that it came in sheets 3'x8' and would cover the deck. I think the evercoat is a roll on product, isn't it ??

Tobes -

Here's a way to lay down a non-skid interior (it will _not_ look origional whaler non-skid):

Tape off the area you want to be non-skid. Roller on a coat of two part marine paint, that matches your inner hull. Take silica sand, the kind used for sandblasting and spread a thin coat on the deck. Let dry. Vacuum off the residue that didn't stick. Re-roll on a second thin coat of paint, to seal in the remaining sand.

Works great.
