Nope nothing. Our wheels barely stuck out the bottom of the door. Doors slide great and the lock still lines up.

Good luck!!

Re: UHMW

Just to clarify, did you apply the tape to the bottom of the door, eliminating the rollers, or did you apply the tape to the bottom of the door frame and let the rollers ride on the tape? Since the rollers are toast (in my case), I'm thinking the tape just replaces the rollers, and the door will slide along the track on the bottom of the door frame. Am I on (no pun intended) the right track? Thanks again for your info..

Sorry Pineapple Girl..I forgot your first response noted that you replaced the rollers on the door with the tape. I'll be ordering some tape after the holidays. Thanks again, and have a great holiday season..

Pineapple Girl, R Moore answered his own questions, but I`m wondering if the tape is applied to both the underside of the door,and the door frame base, or just to one of them.
My sliding hatch to access the flybridge slides (well, sort of slides) on teak runners; this tape could be useful and save dismantling the hatch cover.

That's so weird, I thought I replied???

We just put it on the bottom of the door. We bought it to the same width as the door and covered the whole length of the door. We are VERY happy with it. We have to slide the door slowly or it will fly open into the door stopper.

Bruce maybe if I read more carefully sorry! We actually used the same product on a sliding hatch on a sailboat. We only applied it onto the part the hatch slid upon and it worked well. We had to use a thinner tape in that application as there wasn't much room to play with. I actually need to find the thinner stuff again and use it on the sliding door into the aft cabin. The thing barely slides and is wearing a grove in the top step.

We've decided to sell "Prudence", she is listed on the MTOA.Net (website) which is open to the public.

Prudence (1985 CT 35) has been sold, she left the dock behind my house on Tuesday heading for her new home in South Carolina.
