Easy way to anti-skid your painted deck.
An easy way to anti-skid your painted deck, duck board etc.
Prepare and paint the area as recommended by the manufacturers, put down the last layer.
When dry mark off the area you want to anti-skid, make the design you want and drain lines if needed.
Once marked off, paint another layer over the area to be anti-skid, while wet sprinkle evenly course raw sugar over the wet paint, the courser the rougher it will make the anti skid.
Leave to dry.
When completely dry just wash the area and dissolve the sugar, the imprint of the sugar remains and gives you the anti-skid.
I have used it on the floors of dinghies, decks and on duck boards.
I imagine course salt would work similar, I have not tried it.
Practice your painting and sprinkling on waste first.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
