Non Skid Treadmaster

Has any one had the occassion to install the treadmaster non skid?
Is this a DIY or should one just go ahead and pay the man?
I am looking at a nice Lippinncott 30 but the non skid seems worn and I would like to know what my options are.
Thanks
Foundryman

Re: Non Skid Treadmaster

I used it on my companion way stairs and love it. Don't think I would use it on my deck though. I'm more of a fan of traditional non skid on deck. If you need to remove it from the deck, it would probably be a nightmare.

Re: Non Skid Treadmaster

I luv the stuff! But it's not cheap. Cost me about $400 to do my whole cockpit. If one is experienced with laying epoxy then a DIYer should not have any problems.

It's not glued down or the corners radius yet in the picture.

It's cork and natural rubber. So a heavy duty scraper will take it right up and a power sander would finish it enough for another layer.

You do have to be careful not to damage it with tools and other heavy items.
