    Also you will want to make a template before you pull the old stuff off, it will stretch and deform.
    I tried contacting them twice to request some samples to no avail. Went with seadek instead. Higher price but They are johnny on the spot and good quality.

    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.

    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 have had both. Put the Seadek on the LSV and have been extremely happy with it. It's worth the money. I did put the gator grip on the platform of my Outback a couple of years ago. I was happy with the result. I removed the old stuff and cleaned it. Then, on the living room floor, I laid out the gator grip and traced the platform on the back side of it. You can cut it with a big scissors. Practice on an edge so you get the feel of it before you cut the real thing. Tape one end in place then peel the back of the other end and stick it down. Remove the tape on the first end and stick that down. Get it right the first time-- you only get one chance.

    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:

    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.
