I have not needed to swap out the pads but I see no reason why it would not work.
I do have the same pads on the top surface of the boat to give people a target to hit with their feet when boarding the boat.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1342128884.995260.jpg2010 Moomba XLV

Good write up on the process however I posted those extact same traction pads a year or so ago & they lasted about 6 months before they started to "walk-out" like the OEM pads did. Hope yours last longer than mine.

Thanks for the write up on this one! I noticed ours are starting to walk out on our 2010. Probably something I will tackle in the off season. I appreciate the images and the step by step.Derek & Poppy
