Default Swim Platform Grip

Looking for some more traction on the swim step, what suggestions are there either in clear or white?

A friend of mine had his done with Rhino Liner (the spray in bed liner). Looked really nice and great traction.

How are the colors holding up to UV?

I have the tub and shower 4100 on my platform in 1" clear. They don't show clear listed anymore, but I'm betting they still have it. Mine has been on my boat for 3 seasons with no issues. It has enoug traction, but I think if I ever replace it, I might go with their 3500 for a little more traction. Way cheaper than 3M stuff.

That looks like the same exact stuff they have on McMaster. I put some on my trailer fenders, ladder, and places I might climb on the main trailer rails. Works good so far.

One caveat. It wraps fine on single curvature surfaces, but forget trying to wrap it on anything with compound curvature.

Google "hydro turf". Stuff is awesome. Kinda like the stuff waverunners have for traction/padding, only better. You can get it in sheets and glue down.
