Default Question on Powdercoating?

I have a Tube style Swim platform that was on my Fountain when I bought it. The White (Paint?) or whatever is coming off and I would like to have it redone in White Powdercoat. My question is, it had a texture on the top of the tubes (kinda like sand under the paint) and I have looked at a couple of samples of "Texturized Powdercoating" that has the wrinkles in it, (kinda krinkle coat like)

Anyway If I go with the Textured white powdercoat is it going to be hard to keep clean?? Won't exhaust soot get in the texture and be a pain to get out??

If I go with just plain white will it be to slippery to walk on when wet??

Thanks!!

The ones on Baja and others (from Extreme Marine), have non-skid strips. One guy I know with a 35 TS was able to get them colored. He has a purple swim platform and the non-skid strips are yellow. Looks pretty cool.

I would say if they cant powdercoat some texture strips in there to the way you want it, then i would just have it done smooth and then go to a hobby shop or skate board shop and but some of the grip tape they use for skate boards. You can get it in most any color and as long as you apply it right it should hold up fairly good! And besides if it starts to look bad just peel it off and apply new for a couple bucks!

Baja dude, isn't the rubber non-skid strips on the baja's inlaid into the tubing?? If so mine isn't quite like that!

Does anyone have the textured powdercoat on a swim platform now??

Thanks Brian!! Actually I saw the sample's at Lake Shores during the Shoot-Out and I was planning on using him!! I was just wondering the difference between the two and how hard they are to keep clean!!

I had the textured coating on the swim platform on my 28 Powerplay. The bracket was made by B-Bracket in Ft Lauderdale...ask for Mike..and yes, without the texture you're sure to bust your ass

Kruzzzzzzzzzer in LOTO he's your guy, bring him a 12-pack and he'll paint anything along with your grandmother's toe nails.

What's up Jimmy?
