Thanks for the compliments! I know I'm going to love this deck modification. Just standing on it after putting it together last night, I already like what I see. Now I have a platform big enough to flounder gig, cast net, fly fish, or even put a couple of lounge chairs on, to sit while anchored at the beach.
I've used the skid-no-more product before, used it in my 14 foot Duracraft, and last fall, as much as I hated to do away with that pretty glossy finish paint on my jetboat....I busted my butt in the boat early one morning while it was wet with dew.....a week or so after that, a game warden nearly slipped and busted their butt when I had them out on a shellfish enforcement patrol....so, the platform and the floor got a good coat of the stuff. Problem solved.
I was thinking of using the same thing on the deck of the Triton. But my question is....what's the best method to apply this stuff to get a consistent finish? :?:
When I used it, I applied with a roller, and I swear, I wasted more in the nap of the roller than I got on the deck of the boat, and the finish wasn't very consistent, not like I was hoping for.
Once I get the coat of Skid-No-More put down, it'll get a shot of OD green, then, I have to spray some thin swipes with black, and then make a stencil of a turkey oak leaf, and use some brown and tan, to make the leaf pattern. I think I'll have my girlfriend assist me on this, she's better at this kind of thing than me.
