Seadek or gatorstep on gunwales

Has anyone put seadek or similar product on their gunwales. I want to grab some for my NXT22, but none of the manufactures have the template for the gunwales. They only have the floors specíd out. That makes me think not many people are doing the gunwales.

Are there any issues with putting the product there? We constantly have my young kids and their friends on the boat. Everytime they go jumping off the front of the boat, I always cringe, thinking they are going to slip and bust their heads on the boat. Iíd like to get some grip there, and also donít have to worry about them burning their feet or arms on the hot fiberglass.

I actually bought some off a fellow TT member and put them on - had the same concerns as you. Really glad I bought them!

Gatorstep might have the templates. But not 100% sure they do

Most likely none yet for you. However it's super easy to make and mail off to them

We did ours through Seadek. They sent us a template and we made some tweaks and returned back to them. Product is excellent. Honestly I donít understand why they donít come standard from factory.

Was installation as simple as just sticking it on? Looks real nice.

A DIY template for the gunwales is really easy. It it just one small piece of clear plastic/mylar and tracing the outline of the non-skid.

We did our entire cabin decks and that was a bit more work given the numerous pieces and odd sizes needed to get a clean trace, but the gunwales would be a snap.

I think it's not standard due to contact with correct craft would be my guess since all their boats come standard with it
