Does anyone have any pictures of using gator grip? How easy was it to cut to size etc. Looking for a cheaper alternative to seadek.
I'll try to take some this weekend.
So does seadek have a template that I could give a try? How much for this any how?
WaterBull, I don't think that seadek has actual templates, but if you have a model boat that they make the custom ones for you can look at the measurements here: http://www.seadekstore.com/moomba.aspx
$240 is a little steep for us, but for $140 you can just buy a large pad and cut it to size: http://www.seadekstore.com/largeshee...x77in-5mm.aspx
We were planning to make a template out of paper or something similar and then cut it to size.
For $100 we can get gator grip from wakejunky.com which is even a better deal. In my opinion it doesn't look quite as nice unless you get black, which I have been told to stay away from at all costs. We will likely go with this option in the white/gray depending on the feedback we ge
I've seen/felt both side by side and would suggest that you save some pennies and get the seadek.
I'm sorry but I could only find one pic that even shows my gator grip. It's on the navy blue outback behind Moombadaze in this pic from the Tampa Jam in 2009. It is gray and white and matched the interior very well:
i put gator grip on the deck and a couple spots on the gunwale. has been on our 08 lsv for almost 3 years and very happy with it.
Thanks for all the info and pictures. I love the white/blue on yours yearround, it matches great. I don't think they offer any different color combinations anymore...at least on wakejunky.com
Ordered some of this stuff today. I rode in an X-Star over the weekend that had this on the gunwales and to protect the transom. Looked and felt pretty good. The $100 price is also MUCH better than the $240 and up to 5 week delivery time for Seadek. I have already pulled my old mat off so I will use that was my template. With the factory mat off it made me realize how much better a solid black swim deck looks with my black accent color than the gray it came with or the gray I would've gotten from SeaDek. I just hope the black won't eventually lead to the notorious black marks that the old Moomba pads had. Mine is kept in covered storage safe from the elements so hopefully that will help keep it good. I just hope it doesn't peel back like the SeaDek and factory mat did.
