Bob, what did you end up using? I need to do this soon myself, leaning towards the KiwiGrip. Pics?

I used KiwiGrip with the supplied roller. Very happy with the results.

Very nice! Was the coverage what you expected?

I'm still debating which non skid I want to use. I am concerned about the texture using the supplied roller being too aggressive. But yours looks really good. How does it feel under bare feet or bare butt?
What kind of pressure did you use when applying?

Coverage was good, applied with a 1/8" notch trowel then rolled it out using medium pressure.

Feels fine on both and washes up well with a hose and long handled car wash brush.

If you don't like the texture it has sufficient working time to try several rollers and techniques.

I will use it again.

Bob

Just received six gallons of KiwiGrip in light grey. We will be addressing a couple areas of delamination on our '79 Cheoy Lee's teak decks, then sanding/cleaning/prepping the teak, covering with a layer of fiberglass, then finishing with KiwiGrip.

A guy here in the marina had it applied to his Westsail 32 three years ago and he loves it. The few others I've talked to that have KiwiGrip have also raved about it. We will, of course, be making a video of the entire process...

Thank you Bob.
I think we're going to go with white Kiwigrip.

Beware light gray can get surprisingly hot. I had to change to off white could not walk on with bare feet.

Yes....hot...but I went from white to light gray as it just always looked dirty...

Then again as a liveaboard, in the northeast, at a marina with a gravel parking lot and not a "take your shoes off type....and definitely not a scrub it every few days type...white any thing is a bad idea if you want sparkle..

Love my kiwigrip decks! Repainted the entire boat with linear polyurethane (Alexseal), but wanted something easier to repair on the non-skid.

Kiwigrip is really, really easy to apply and repair. It feels good under your bare feet (slightly rubberized) and looks pretty darned good.

My only complaint is it holds dirt more than a 2-part poly with non-skid. The "trick" is... Apply Woody Wax every now and then.

Prep...





Finished...







We did the foredeck, port & starboard sides. Took all of 1 gallon with a wee bit left over. Prep took 3-4 hours, application an hour. Followed all instructions, and used the standard roller. Feels nice on bare feet, we're very happy with the results. We have another gallon for the aft deck and sides.

Cheers
