Author Topic:   Spider cracks and spray on liner for deck, Question

I have a 22' gaurdian. On the deck are hundreds of spider cracks. The boat is still in pretty good condition and i plan on keeping it for a very long time. There really are too many to individually fix. I was planning to do a spray on liner on the whole inside of the boat.
1. How should I prep before the liner
2. What to do about accessing deck screws and the like.
3. Will the liner cover all the spidercracks?
4. Will the liner hold up to saltwater and sunshine.

I have read info here before on the subject but lost the threads. Any help greatly appreciated.

do a search on the following

Ultratuff

Durabak

Sanitread.


I'm getting ready to spray the Ultratuff on mine. My 40yr old boat was beat up pretty bad, so I need a thicker liner to cover the cracks, etc.

Each has a little different method of application, etc.

go visit each website and then go from there.

good luck

Just sprayed my fifteen footer with Diamond Liner. Thousands of gel coat cracks very nicely covered. Tremendous non slip coating and easy to washdown . Cost, 300 dollars.

High Sierra,

I have a 15 with an interior that needs some serious love too, can you go into any more detail as to the application process, the amount of time it took, did you sand down the original non-skid ot leave it on, etc? Did you cover just the deck, or the side walls and other vertical surfaces? Any tips or anecdotal info would be greatly appreciated.

Ranger Rick, the process is a spray on process at very high temperatures. Look under spray on bed liners in the phone book or on line. It will stick to any surface at any angle. They do all the sanding and prep work. It produces a non slip surface that will not bother even bare feet. I've never seen one yet that came off. { I should be selling this stuff}. It made my boat look a thousand percent better. I had a million spider cracks in my boat. This was sprayed only inside the hull From gunnel to gunnel. It only adds about 20 to 30 pounds to the weight of the boat. Just like adding armor plating as far as anti wear. High Sierra

alkar had his 22 Outrage treated with LINE-X. That was after new Awlgrip (paint) had been applied. The result turned out very "Guardian" like.
