I’ve used the Total Boat liquid non skid and it’s FABULOUS! First masked off the non skid followed by 2 coats over a dimpled surface that was worthless. Crew could not believe the difference. Best of all it was easy to apply and did not appear to diminish over the season.
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.
