Removed old cracking OEM pad. Scaped and sanded adhesive off. Sanded entire platform. Masked off pad area. Srayed edges with PlastiKote bedliner. Its not very rough and looks great. Installed pad. We'll see how it holds up.

With the bedliners texture and thickness, I didnt need to worry about minor sanding marks as it covered them right up.

:cool:

Looks good! You bedlinered the swim deck? Too beat up to polish out?

There were a few deep scratches that could not be wet sanded or polished out. I dont think there is gelcoat on it. For sure in the pad area, it was just paint or it is super thin, like about 1/64". Sanded through it very easily. I wanted a new look to the platform and the bedliner did it.

looks good. I wish I could find a nice fiberglass platform for a 93 Prostar.

Ya, you should. Took about 4 hours from start to finish. Hardest part was getting the old silicone adhesive off.

Let me know if you want help or tips.

Anyone know of some kind of transom saver for an X2? want to keep the board scratches to a minimum.

Clear bra. For the deep scratches you dob gelcoat into the scratch, come back later wet sand and compound. Looks good as new.

I do like the bedliner idea. You most likely won't ever have to worry about scratches again :D

I have not pulled off the backing and stuck this in pace yet. After I received it, I wanted to make sure it would fit. Looks like it will be a perfect fit. Just need to find the time to get my boat finished and back in the water!!!

I am also thinking of having a canvas shop add a piece of material to the back of my cover to extend over the swim platform. My boat is kept on a lift at the lake and I am hoping this will offer a little more protection.

Wow, looks neat. Looking to do this eventually on my X25. Any idea if the platform is the same for both the X2 and X25 (Seadek does not have an X25 specific pattern)?

I am thinking about putting a matching pad on the bow step. My cap is grey and it gets hot and is a bit slippery.....

Just emailed Seadek to check on one.

I am looking into doing that same pad on the deck of my '06 X30. Did you use the X45 template from their web site? I haven't done an accurate measurement but in rough numbers, it looks like the correct pattern for my X30. Can I ask what the total bill came to?

Yeah, I'm really happy with it. Its easy on the feet and does not get hot like the hard black rubber did. Will be much better for the 105 degree Shasta heat. :D

I have the material and the template for the bow step pad. Hope to get it on this weekend.

I'll save the template in case you want to do the same..............:rolleyes:

Great Idea, TransomShield Protector (http://www.savvyboater.com/store/p/7...Protector.aspx)
The sides could use it just below the bumper.
For some reason I notice new marks when others use it when it comes back vs the transom.

I wonder if it's the same product as rock guard on vehicles.

My question is what adhesive did you use? My factory Mastercraft pad is coming loose, what should I use to re glue?

The Sea Dek pads come with adhesive on the back. My original black rubber pad came loose and I glued it back on with clear water-proof caulking.

And it was painful to get off...............:o

Any tips for taking off the old OEM pad? Not crazy about grabbing the sander? Would maybe something like a goof-off work?

Anyone compare the new MC pad vs SeaDeck's pad?
