ContinuousWave: Whaler Repairs/Mods
|Author||Topic: Patching non-skid|

I have a section of floor/non-skid on my '73 Katama that has been damaged and poorly repaired by a previous owner, who just laid some sections of FG cloth over it. Its about 6" by 10" just aft of the anchor locker drain tube, in the valley between the raised steps. It looks to me that the floor/non-skid is completey missing, with only the patch (fairly sturdy at least) covering what is beneath it (foam?). I would like to cut the old repair out and fix it right - matching the original non-skid. Any suggestions or advice on how best to do that? Thanks in advance. Ken.

Gibco Flex-Mold makes a flexible mold for repairing non-skid. They have Whaler patterns and will send you a sample kit so you can get an exact match. It comes in various sizes a 2'x4' piece will cost about $100 and a 3'x10' piece will cost $270. It works great after a little practice. Give them a call.
