Platform Insert Product - DinoGrip

For anyone looking for a new platform insert, but doesn't want to splurge on SeaDek, I recommend Dinogrip from http://www.wakejunky.com. I called Chris and he sent me a full sheet for $100. I used the old insert to make a template and cut it out with an exacto knife. It took me about 45 minutes to install. Very comfy on the feet, doesn't get hot, and provides good traction. Just my 2 cents. Have a great weekend everyone!

I sent an email to wakejunky yesterday evening and got an email back from Chris at 7:09 am this morning confirming my request for a sample and thanking me for my interest. This is a California based company. Signs of a well run business.

Thanks Chris

Thanks for posting, I'm about to put something on my 88 TriStar. My platform is molded into the boat (terrible design, although it holds a 400lb ballast bag quite well). Does it require any scuffing or surface prep of the existing platform? Mine is textured but still is gel-coat fiberglass and i want to make sure I am doing the right thing before abrading my gel coat.

Best Regards,



John Patton

I used that product years ago on my 02 Moomba outback that the old left black marks all over the feet. this product worked great compared to the factory mat.

I just removed the old and cut to fit then took off the adhesive backing. but before installing I sprays some 3m adhesive spray down. never had a issue with it coming back up.

I couple of years ago I replaced my swimstep pad and fender pads with HydroTurf.
http://www.pwcmuscle.com/hydro-turf/...rf-sheets.html
(I choose the adhesive backed material. Glue-on was also an option.)
I bought a sheet and used the old pieces as templates.
I cleaned the old glue residue off -- that took some effort, wiped things down with acetone, and installed the pieces. They have been rock solid for two summers now.

I assume your TriStar never had a swim pad? (My '91 Tristar did but it had the smooth swimstep.) With your pebbled surface I think anything should stick OK. I wouldn't abrade the glass. Just press it down really well, especially along the edges.

Hydro-turf is the ticket. Tough, long-lasting and relative inexpensive...

The Dinogrip looks nice too....
