Peeling swim platform mat

Recommended Posts

vanamp

Going through and detailing our new (used 2012) A22 and so far everything looks good except the mat on the swim platform it peeling up a little around the edges and the side closest to the transom is trapping debris and crap in it. Has anyone had any success in gluing this mat back down?

You could try it but here is a link to a new one. I would be worried about using some sort of adhesive on that one since debris has already been in between the gel coat and the old pad. Not sure if it will adhere very well.

Talk with your dealer. They should be able to help you our and or take care of it if you bought the boat from them.

Dealer re glued mine that had a little debris in it. Not sure what they used but whatever it was, it held up well.

I used to help out at a Nautique dealer in the area. They used contact cement, like for gluing counter tops down. It worked quite well. You have to let it get sticky and almost dry on both sides before you stick it together.

Another good option is Hydroturf. Comes in a variety of colors, non-skid & a lot less expensive. Order it with PSA on it, cut it easily with a pair of scissors to whatever size or shape you want.

This is a similar product called Gator Grip that is no longer available. It was done out of some scraps several years ago & still looks the same. Have matching steps on the gunnels & bow.

You can do repairs using a spray on product like 3Ms Super 90 spray adhesive.

There's a Malibu tech bulletin on this. It covers cleaning and proper adhesive. Call your dealer.
