Has anyone ever used the roll-on bed liner material as a surfacing for flooring? My gel coat is not in great shape, the same goes for the texturing on the floor. I know the "purists" won't appreciate the suggestion, but I'm thinking out loud and would appreciate the input! Thanks in advance!

I've used the sand in paint method on the floor of a sailboat. Worked OK and cheap.

I too had a messed up deck. I "re-created" the texture with West System Epoxy using a small groved trowel like used on a floor to spread glue. West System had 401 Microfibers for thick consistancy. After painting with Epoxy it's very hard to tell...it came out real good.

If you want to go 1st class find us paint co internet site, they are the creators of awlgrip. you can order non skid particles from them that react with 2 part epoxy paints (awlgrip preferably) and create a true non skid surface. Outside of that you go all the way and cut out the floor and they actually manufacture fiberglass deck surfaces in that pattern(but who wants to go to all that unless the deck needs to be replace anyway.)Ive had to do a little of both and the non skip particles are quite good.

When I painted mine, I used the interlux "silica texture powder" mixed w/ the paint on the deck. It gave it a gritty, hopefully non-slip finish.
