Non-slip Safety Coating for Your Boat or Ship

This is used on commercial work boats and some that carry pax for hire .

Much cheaper than Treadmaster , and easier to apply.

Will not last for decades , but at the price....

That gray paint my be fine up north or out in the SF Bay, but on my swin step, it requires shoes, sandels or rug to cover it during the summer in the CA Delta. Unless your feet are in mid season form, you'll never make it accross my swim step and up the stairs when it is above 90. And it is above 90 alot out this way in the summer.

I used a light tan. My swim step is naked teak, so to speak.

Nothing but white decks for me. I've had teak, grey and beigh decks over the years. I prefer no shoes.

I have light grey decks that need attention. They are just too hot for bare feet in the summer sun, so I'm looking for a cool-feeling, good looking alternative.

I love the look of teak decks, but don't want the expense or maintenance. Does anyone have experience with or knowledge of Plasteak Coolteak?

You're spot on. Gray decks (which have the temperture of cement) can be hot, but bare feet are a no-no on the Coot.

We did our non-skid with Kiwigrip. Good stuff and easy to apply, would use it again.

All of our non-skid is done with white Dura-Bak, that is overcoated with a good coat of "Signature Finish's color Just White". The Dura-Bak is overcoated to tone down the aggressive non-skid, and the white is used to keep the decks cool. Our entire topsides are done in the "Just White" other than the green stripes. Its just too hot in FL to do otherwise....
