    Default Gator Grip

    Decided to finally replace swim platform pad with Gator Grip. Any tips on ordering, and installation on a 2002 Outback LS?

    Why Gator Grip?

    It's hard to cut and most installs don't exactly look like they have been done by a professional.

    I had a sample of the stuff once. It never made it on the platform - in fact it went out with the garbage.

    Look into SeaDek. Spend the extra $$ and get it done right the 1st time.

    hydroturf.com has a lot more selection and is a little easier to work with.


    PWI as usual...

    I have a SeaDek pad on my platform. I also have some Hydroturf in other areas of my boat. Both are nice. I would recommend SeaDek for the platform. Good colors, patterns, and its already shaped-less work.

    Hydro turf is nice too. Not as thick as Seadek. Can cut with a good scissors. If you take some sand paper to the edge it will really smooth out prior to application.

    No experience with Gator Grip.

    I would recommend making a template prior to removing the old material though.

    Are there different variations? I just put some hydroturf on my trailer for that is a good 1/4" thick. I think it's a bit rougher to the touch than seadek though. I always thought seadek was a little spongy.

    Berg- Your right, hydro turf is about 1/4" thick but the Seadek platform pad is a little thicker, about 1-2 milimeter. It had to do with the two colors on the platform pad.

    Ordered a roll of Gator Grip on Monday and it came in the mail today! Llike I said I would...I used my old pad as a template, cut it out and stuck it on. Looks really good and for $100 shipped to my door in 3 days much better than $240 and five weeks for Seadek and $215 for the OEM pad from the dealer. I have a ton left too. I'll probably make a transom saver and maybe put some on the trailer.

    Yep, sure was. It was PERFECT. Had a little on the sides to spare.
