It is white KiwiGrip. The stuff is very thick, about the consistency of pudding.

I dumped a blob out of the can and spread it out with a 1/8" v notch trowel then used the KiwiGrip roller to set the finish.

Very easy to install but be prepared for a lot of splatter. Easy cleanup with warm water.

Our 1977 Tolly's main deck is its 39 yr old orig beige color and non skid texture gel coat.... still in OK good condition. Problem - Gets toooo darn hot in mid summer. Looking to paint/cover it with light color, non skid surface. My other need/requirement for the new surface is l-o-n-g duration durability (15 yrs minimum)... without chipping, cracking and/or getting chalky for tracking the light color inside boat.

Do you think this coating product would suffice. I'm looking into all forms of surface coatings and have no problem with multiple coats to ensure its long life if that is what's required.

Very nice. Looking to read about the process. Since I'm on the 10 year plan, the projects are staring to accumulate.

1. Necessary
2. Like to do
3. Round tuits

I can see where I could do this on my boat. Cabin top comes to mind.

Art,

Nice thing is you can vary the thickness and texture to you needs during application. I like the effect of 1/8" and the supplied roller. Our dock mates use the same product ten years ago with a foam roller. Also a very nice effect but much less texture.

Art,

I will post a couple of photos of his deck tomorrow. It is in the PNW so it sees all seasons.

It always amazes me how much better a Grand Banks looks without the flybridge. It amazes me the factory never offered a delete option. She looks great Bob

Short video of a spin around the basin

Dinghy has been removed since this was taken. Replacing with a nice lapstrake Ranger.

Art,

It is in great shape. Weather seems to have not affected it at all. PNW sun is not nearly as intense as other parts of the country though.

Nice looking boat, Bob. It looks familiar but new and unique. I hope you get used to folks asking, what kind of boat is that?

She'd be a great platform for solar! Lots of real estate up there.

Bob,
You've done it!
The classic sedan lives!
The GB's are so seldom seen w/o the FB there's no comparison. But now we have it. To me sans FB is perfect, better and better looking but many aren't comfortable w different than usual houses, cars, boats or whatever. Thinking out of the box comes natural for others (like myself) but in this case it seems that most any honest person can see your boat looks better .. longer, faster, more stable .. or even sleeker ... at least visually but perhaps to a small degree otherwise too. But then I'm biased. I've been say'in fly bridges are kinda silly all along. Does this make you out to be kind of a myth buster? To some degree yes.
