I was wondering if anyone here has tried Woody Wax http://www.woody-wax.com/woody_wax.php on their non-skid. Cleaning non-skid is such a pain, and it seems that you can never protect it from oxidation. Looks like this might be worth a try.

Don't use it, if you do you have to reapply every three months because it wears away. They used it on a Ship shape Tv show once. it looks great but needs to be applyed to often for me. try it if you want to and don't care about all of the work.
Tightlines & happy WHALIN'

I did notice that. But up here in the Great Lakes we only have about a 5 month season any way. Additionally, no wax I have ever used lasts 3 months, that is why I wax the boat every 3 weeks.

Woody-Wax, makes a terrific product line, and that one works pretty well, although nothing is like a "just out of the factory shine",overall its worth the effort. The only real downside to it, is that you CANNOT use a non-skid deck cleaner, like Star-Brite's deck cleaner, it will take the Woody-Wax off.Woody-Wax metal cleaner/restorer is also an excellent product, it removed most of the pits/chalk from my T-top.Goodluck.

I tried the "Woody Wax" last year and I was impressed with it. On older vintage Whalers there seems to be a constant battle against oxidation. The Woodie wax seemed to condition the non-skid areas somewhat like armor all is to rubber. I agree with the report that the Star bright deck cleaner strips it off. However if you want your decks to look new I have found nothing that works better than those 2 products applied in the correct order 1st-cleaner 2nd-wax. If there is a better method I would like to know about it. pb

I bought a bottle.. its pretty expensive stuff. It makes the deck a little too slick, and it does not seem to last all that well. I'm not sure it was worth the money.

Waxing non-skid... sounds like "clean dirt".
Try Penetorl. Darkens the color to more-like-new. It's only oily for a few minutes. Eliminates white chalky look to older gellcoat.
