Post Subject: New board for lockers and engine cover

Hello everyone. Can anyone tell me where I can source marine plywood with a nonslip surface to renew our locker and engine cover board. I have seen hoards that have a 'rubber tread effect' but cannot find out where to buy it from or what yo search on. Mint thanks.

Don't worry about spelling, you will see I make loads of mistakes and that is on a computer with a spell checker. Try searching for Buffolo Board or HexaGrip. I suspect it is likely to come in large sheets from on line suppliers so see if you can find a local truck body builder/repairer or someone making or repairing trailers.They may have suitable offcuts or even cut to size for you. Otherwise try the larger marinas/boat yards. It is important that you take trouble sealing the edges because all makes seem to deteriorate from the edges inwards. I painted on two coats of epoxy resin but an end grain sealer i also likely to work.
