"One thing I thought of
is routing out sections under the non slip matting (Treadmaster) "patches"
1/16" depth which would place the continuous matting (below the raised
triangles) flush with the deck."
I wouldn't touch the existing deck with a router. If you were to weaken the
topskin of the deck, you could create a situation when the deck could
develop small cracks that would start letting water penetrate into the core.
This could ruin the boat. I have a power boat with a painted non-skin deck
and after 10+ hard-driven years the black spots are starting to show. I'll
just put on anther coat of paint.

"PERFECT intentions" is coming dangerously close to being ready for a huge
milestone, the paint job. I have taken a serious look at Treadmaster
non-slip, glue down matting but, even though it seems you would cut your
foot before slipping on the stuff, it is expensive and, I think, would look
odd because it is so thick (1/8"). I keep going back to non-slip paint but
am concerned that the paint on top of the non slip granules wears off to
expose ugly black "spots."
Of the variety of non slip paint discussed in the past, does anyone know of
any that hold their (light) color after a few years of use?
I have filled the original no slip gel coat with epoxy. One thing I thought
of is routing out sections under the non slip matting (Treadmaster)
"patches" to 1/16" depth which would place the continuous matting (below the
raised triangles) flush with the deck. this way it would drain well and only
the 1/16" high triangles would be above the plane of the deck.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
