Swim Platform Replacement?

Recommended Posts

mdsan8370

the black rubber on my swim deck gets my upholstery all black when stepping from my platform onto the boat . I'm looking to replace it with Seadek, probably with the Faux teak look. Has anyone had good or bad luck with Seadek?

I've had black seadek for 4 years on my trailer fenders and swim grid with great results. No black footprints!

I had same issue. My seadek turned out great, but only had for a week so far. IMG_20150519_195651_zpsjovpmccg.jpg

Is this a common problem? I literally just swapped my teak for fiberglass/rubber and haven't used it yet... lol boats will be boats

Ok fun... so from what I can see, the best options are:

1) Replace with Seadek at a cost between $255 - $300 (seadek.com) **Perfect fit - no need to cut**

2) Replace with Dyno Grip (wakejunky.com) at a cost ~ $100 **Comes in sheets - need to cut to size**

3) Replace with Hydro-Turf (hydroturf.com) at a cost of $80 + $30 for adhesive **Comes in sheets - need to cut to size**

Any other recommendations? I'm sure there are some others out there!

This looks like a winner. Will be going this route if I have the problem mentioned above

As long as we're on a roll - any recommendations as to how to cut the edges of this stuff? Use a router? Just be careful with an X-acto knife? Possibly get a Mat Cutter for 45 degree angle cuts?? I suppose it all depends on how fancy you want to get... but does using a router seem like a viable method?? (I've honestly never used one before)

Not sure on best method, but it cuts really easily with a razor.

I would not advise using a router, having used one.

What happened when you used a router? I assumed they used some sort of router'ish type tool to get the beveled edge.
