I own an Antrim 27 weighing around 3000 lbs. I have a white VC Offshore Performance paint on the bottom, and I strictly dry sail. The bunk board carpeting is a mess, leaves stains on the bottom, and is at the end of its lifespan.

What is a good plastic/Teflon padding I can use on my 12' x 4" bunk boards instead of carpet?

three strips of vinyl (i think) stips of rub rail/bumper materal with stiff plastic cordage inside. this will offer ventilation. I'd do it, but too lazy!

I've had decent luck with astroturf type material, the plastic stuff they use on door mats. It is stiff enough to let the hull dry but not so stiff as to cause scratching.

This stuff: http://solutions.3m....Zbe0LP73J3X1Tgl

Used it on the bunks of my hydrohoist when I had the Rocket. Doesn't hold water and the loops allow it to air out.

Easy on the gelcoat also.

Where do you get white VC Offshore? Sure it is not Trilux?
