Hey Jim

Open your Picasa page and right click with your mouse on the photo. A menu will pop up and select "properties". Once that popup loads you'll see the URL. It'll span two or three lines (in Internet Exploder) so you'll have to drag your cursor over the entire URL to select it. Then Ctrl + C to copy it. Once you're back in CF just click the "Insert Image" icon above and paste (Ctrl+V) into the URL field.

Picasa Web Albums - JAMES - KiwiGrip

OK, kind of an experiment to see if the pic shows up but also showing the hatches with KiwiGrip. Hard to see a close up.

On my last yacht, which was steel, the decks were painted with normal acrylic house paint finished with a textured roller, worked great, cheap easy to touch up, on the fishing boats I work on we are adding ground up car tyres to our deck paint for non slip, much more user friendly than sand on gear and bodies

Could you elaborate on what you mean by a "carpet roller"? I am assuming that you are referring to a small (5-6 in wide) steel seam roller but am not sure on that.

Thanks in advance,

John

I can't imagine any use for a Carpet Seam Roller on a boat.

They're good for giving your sails a 'weathered' look. Just pull your sails, lay them on a somewhat cushioned surface, and work the roller vigorously over the entire canvas.

:P

Cheers,

Ah, your picture of one with prickly rollers might answer my question as being no expert in carpet laying I thought that there were only solid roller ones. So I suspect that prickly roller type is used to give a textured finish to the KiwiGrip.

But it looks like you guys' disparaging comments about carpet rollers on boats might of scared Jimske away; such comments of the type I would never make myself . As this is a deck job I have coming up in a year or two (and hopefully a few more than that even ) I would be very keen to get further explanation from Jimske.

Just adding to the general theme of the thread, there is a boat along from us that I am pretty sure must have used KiwiGrip or something very similar and then glazed it with polyutrethane paint along the lines KiwiGrip suggest is possible if one desires. It has been done with a rough texture and has turned out so pointy on top and then fixed like that with the glass hard polyurethane that it seems to me to look as if it is like broken glass to walk, kneel or bleed on.

Acrylic paint? Why not? Could promote rust on a steel deck but otherwise it will protect - until it doesn't. Certainly it won't be as durable as a copolymer. But the water soluble coplymers are easy to apply as well - more expensive.

It's true I scare easy. Tough crowd :-) My bad. I assumed we were speaking of "roller" covers. Below see the "carpet" cover. That is what they call it on the package. I liked the finish as seen on my other post. I didn't like the texturre cover they sell for this product.

Ah, all clear now - thanks very much .

Information now tucked away for possible future use when my turn to redo my decks comes around.

Blahman indicates his deck always looks dirty. Has any one else had a problem with this?

Not yet. It seems to clean up pretty well as long as the "stipple" isn't too high and hard to get to with a scrub brush. But. . .likely it won't clean as well as glossy surface.

The acrylic paint is applied over your normal paint to provide non skid surface just the same as Kiwi-Grip, its just a hell of a lot cheaper and looks pretty similar, was always happy with it and would happily do it again

Well, you are not giving a lot of information here but . . .Happiness is the important thing in the end so what's to say except "whatever floats your boat." Send some pics!
