That's pretty thin - like less than 0.25"

Re: Truck Bed Liner

Armored my anchor locker with Line-X. 6 years later it looks like new and protects the metal from the chain and vice versa.

Re: Truck Bed Liner

renewing a sagging post here, but I need to do something in our cockpit floor area. It's sound, just aging. And it's a textured fiberglass gel finish, so it's moderately difficult to clean. Have to use brushes to scrub into the little crevices. My problem is shipping. We've been using MyUS out of Sarasota to consolidate and ship to us, and I've already run into some expensive problems with trying to ship aerosols and some other boat products via Fed Ex or UPS etc. So I need something water based. I looked into Tuffcoat, which they claim is non-toxic non-flammable etc. but then they also say you MUST use their primer on any surface, which starts to get expensive and makes this actually a three part product, not a one part as advertised. Overtons and Bass Pro both carry Tuffcoat, but list it as ground shippable only. No good to me, on an island.
So, does anyone here know of an air-shippable one part , non flammable roll on bedliner that works well on fiberglass?

I had Line-X sprayed in my 2003 pickup and I have to disagree with your evaluation. It has held up well, is not like sandpaper and not hard on the knees although I don't crawl around in the bed much. It doesn't scrape objects placed in the truck bed.

Perhaps there was a difference in the application. Mine was done by a Line-X shop.

I imagine any of these products would be really hot on a boat deck in black but I think they have other colors. Best bet would be to visit an authorized shop and talk to them about using the product on a boat.

Before you do anythin drastic, try Starbrite Non-Skid Deck Cleaner. This stuff lifts the soil out of the non skid without a lot of brushing.

Re: Truck Bed Liner

Exactly my opinion ,tough but slippery, especially in deck shoes or barefoot.

Re: Truck Bed Liner

I saw a San Juan 24 coated in this stuff, bright yellow hull to the waterline, normal below that.
The deck was grey, cabin white.
Looked nice, but I had to wet it and walk on it in foulie boots and then barefoot, VERY SLIPPERY.

Re: Truck Bed Liner

I've seen many work boats with Rhino liner and that stuff is not slippery, it's rubbery, but ugly and black. Very tough though, can throw chain, net doors whatever on it and not tear it loose very easily.
