Getting ready to replace the material on my Moomba swim platform. I think I'm going with Hydroturf. I think the swim platform is 69" wide but the hydroturf comes in 62" wide sheets. If I cut it into three pieces will the 62" sheet work?

This is what I'm thinking

I bought the 62" sheet for my Supra SSV and cut it just as pictured above. It worked out great.

For those of you that have put swim platform material on, what kind of adhesive are you using?

The Traxx pad I sell (aka; Gator Grip in the jetski world) comes with a pre-applied pressure sensitive adhesive already on it. Just peel off the backing & put it down on a clean, dry surface. I will usually stack some weight on it for a few minutes/hours just to make sure it stays put.

Hydro-turf comes with or without 3M adhesive backing. I bought mine with the adhesive backing. It sticks like a charm and has not peeld up yet.

My gator grip had adhesive but only works well with fiberglass. I was lazy on through my pad over my teak platform using gorilla glue. Havent had any issues and people are slipping on the platform anymore
