    Price Check Please!

    I need to replace the non-skid on three steps leading up to the sundeck of our Gibson. The quote was $400 for painted non-skid.. I was shocked.. seems very expensive for just three steps. Am I wrong?

    You can buy adhesive non-skid and just stick it on. West Marine has Non skid tape for 11.99. I have seen larger pads on line fr less than $35 I use the tape on my 18 footer and it works just fine. If it ever wears out just remove it and replace.

    Non Skid addative for your paint is 8 bucks at ACE HARDWARE I used it on the decks of my River Queens. Feet frendly and cleans up easily.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.

    I'd simply peel off the old non-skid pads and replace them with slightly larger pads. You can get 'em in white I think. Sure beats $400!
