Anyone know the best non skid material I can put in the bow section? I put a rug non skid mat down

And that seemed to work good until I took the floor up and realized the 3m spray adhesive I used was what was holding the floor mat down to the fiberglass not really the non skid Mat.

Itís only my bow section that is a problem, the main cabin area I Rhino lines and is rough enough that it holds the mat.

I think I read on a DIY for this mat to use PVC glue to glue a non skid to the bottom of the mat. Any suggestions?

The floor itself has been awesome these last few months. Just gotta get the front Bow section To not move when a foot pushes off of it. I do plan on adding snaps at the front but afraid they will tear out if I donít help the mat from sliding.

Thanks for any ideas.

Here's a cheep way to make Non skid ,Take Surfboard sanding resin,tape off your area ,you can put pigment of any color you want in it ,,,Brush the resin it thin (its an Art) and sprinkel Salt over the resin (its an ART),,,let it get hard ,HARD ,,,and you CAN take some 600 to if you want...You should practice with card board...

Use this stuff to glue the backing to it. You don't need glue on every bit of it. Just do your best and it'll probably work well.

I haven't tested this, but I would bet that the E6800 without anything would actually provide good traction. It dries into a hard, rubbery form. I'd bet that if you just put a bunch of zig-zags of glue on the bottom of the matting that it would provide adequate traction.

Tom thatís a good idea and good advice I definitely fall under the category of over gluing things and I need to take a step back on that.

I was at A store today and they actually had a 100% rubber non slip rig mat. So I grabbed it. It isnít the foam type. So I will give this a try with the glue that Tom suggested. Thanks

Moose not a bad option but as you stated in your post seems like itís a art so Iíll probably stay away from that and I have had the thought to glue something to the boat but ultimately I would like to not ďinstallĒ anything on the fiberglass and keep it on the Miners Moss Matt
