Non skid taping
Here is a short update on what I have been doing. Boat is almost finished and one of the last building steps will be applying the non skid.
I bought a can of white Kiwigrip which I custom colored to a light grey. Then I masked the boat with blue tape.
That is a long but amusing job to do as it gives you a chance to visually check out for the boat symmetry
Still some more taping to do, mainly rounding off the corners of the masking tape, then some sanding to (unfortunately) rough off that glossy Perfection surface, and I ll be ready to spread the Kiwigrip all over the boat. As a matter of fact I really do mean all over as most of the surface will be painted over.
No matter what though, I will leave that keel support as it is because I really dig its zebra look.
