  1. I wasn't able to find much info in the forums about the Tartan 101 and would appreciate comments from those with first hand experience with the T101. Does it sail to it's numbers? Upwind performance? Downwind performance? Pluses and minuses? Construction? Best sail configuration? Etc. Thanks all.
  2. Looking for an experienced, exacting sailboat surveyor in the Corpus Christi area. Thanks.
  3. Suggest Total Tread. It’s a non skid paint. Very easy to apply. A pint would probably be all you would need. Very easy on bare feet yet non skid.
  4. I ended up using Total Tread by Total Boat. It's excellent and I recommend it highly. Taping was the most work. The non-skid particles are suspended in the paint so very little stirring required. Application is EASY. I put 2 coats on and my crew marvels at the difference. Applied directly over the ineffective dimpled pattern molded into the deck.
  5. Total Tread from Jamestown Distributors is a non-skid paint that looks promising. Can be installed, they tell me, directly over existing molded in non-skid. Just scuff it up.
  6. The non-skid on my Andrews 28 is much too slippery. I have 2 ways to repair it: non-skid paint vs self adhesive non-skid product (eg SeaDek). Total Tread is a new non-skid paint made by Total Boat and offered through Jamestown Distributors. They tell me that it can be applied directly over my current, ineffective, molded in dimpled non-skid surface. The SeaDek like material that is available will also apply directly over my current non-skid. Assuming costs, labor, etc. are all similar, I am considering applying the Total Tread. If it works as advertised, I'm done. If it doesn't, I can alway
  7. I installed SeaDek with PSA over the molded in dimpled nonskid in my cockpit. Just overlapped the nonskid by ¼” for extra adhesion and it worked perfectly.
  8. Never intended my earlier response to be "snitty." Sorry guys. In response to Zonker, she's an Andrews 28, only 4 built, that sat on a lift, outside, in Annapolis for nearly 10 years with no real care given to the deck and only a boom tent. I had some sheets of SeaDec which I used in the cockpit. Great improvement. I was trying to find a solution less expensive than SeaDec. I'll check the price of Raptor. I agree that Treadmaster is too heavy. I was thinking that if I used the Harken tape that I would lay it in strips and not cover the entire non-skid area.
  9. You are both wrong. I've wiped the non-skid down with acetone to remove any contaminates. No effect. And it's a 2010 (not a 1980 model). Any other suggestions. Harken tells me that their new non-skid tape will go over that type of surface and adhere. We'll see.
  10. The foredeck on my 28’ racer/cruiser has a molded dimpled pattern that’s totally ineffective. I want to apply a nonskid product over the existing surface. Suggestions?
  11. Thanks. Did you apply it on a flat surface or over molded in non-skid. Your thoughts on applying over a dimpled non-skid surface?
  12. It's extraordinary that no one appears to have used this product and I can't get Harken to respond either. Was it just a failure?
