Question for "Pickle Fork"-ers...

Looking at an '07 X2, and got the low down on living with one from Corey locally (02ProstarSammyD...thanks again by the way).

My kids love to run around and jump off all areas of the boat. Corey said that the front area between the pickle forks can get slippery when it's wet. Has anyone here added SeaDek or grip tape or something to that area to help with that issue?

I installed Gator Grip on my previous boat on the bow and it worked great.

There's non skid there but the issue is MCOD and wax on that area for my boat. To be truthful it's very rare that I step on that area of the boat. I tend the anchor leaning over bow but from in the boat. Ingress and egress are typically done from the side of the boat. In short it's really never been an issue for me but I guess it could be in certain situations. But that could be said of any deck area on any boat.

So more of the issue I told Jason about was with kids. My kids love diving off the front but kids are kids and not every dive is going to be from a complete stand still. There is a textured area but its still a lil slick esp if you are 303'n seats etc. The non skid is about worthless and just grabs dirt etc anyways.

I do agree that it does get slippery. And adding sea deck or gator step is on the list.

Just have them lay a towel over the area covering the seat also. Problem solved.

That makes it even worse. The towel slides all over the place.

I don't really have an issue there. I use it a lot when throwing the anchor out or pulling it in. When I remove the seat and get the anchor back in, the best place to step down is the area right beside the anchor hole, but I can see myself busting it on the wet slick flat fiberglass. I've contemplated getting a piece of seadeck made for the area so I don't have to keep stepping on the side seats when coming back in.

The concern is kids jumping there not while dealing with the anchor.
