Post Subject: deck boards

Hi went to the boat friday to make it ready for winter and discovered that one of my battery boxes was full of water so looking closely at my back deck boards (cruiser) I think new one`s is needed.What I have now is just marine ply but would like to have the one`s with rubber on as you see on a lot of hire boats .What are they called and where do you buy them? Thanks

There is more than one brand but I think that you are probably talking about Hexagrip (one make) but its is more of a textured laminate than a rubber. This is used extensively for the flooring in commercial vehicles and trailers. If you have any commercial vehicle body repairers or trailer manufacturers near you they may sell you an off-cut but I find many boatyards who do repairs also stock it and will cut to size rather than you having to buy a whole board. If your read deck is not self draining I doubt you will stop water getting below. If it is self draining you should check the drains are free. Now you know Hexagrip you can Google for suppliers or talk to your local timber merchant. Tony Brooks
