slippery floor in my Clam

Recommended Posts

Bought a new clam 6800 this winter and was disappointed in the flooring. any kind of moisture on the floor resulted in a very slippery surface. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I was thinking about getting a quart of truck bed liner paint (rhino liner?) and painting it with that. Would I need to sand the plastic firt so it would accept the rubberized paint?

I kept a squegee in my bucket and just ran the water down the hole............
Cheap and effective without a major commitment or running the risk of messing up the house.

Picks,
I also had problems in my portable, I went to the hardware store and bought adhesive backed skid strips, the kind you see on stair treads. They have a very heavy material that looks like sandpaper, you have to do it in the summer when the plastic is dry and warm, but just clean the area before you adhere and stick them down. It's worked wonders for me.

I saw a fish house that had bathtub non-skid flowers stuck on the floor. It looked a bit strange but worked pretty well.

I sprayed a can of spray in bed liner in mine but it was a different surface than the clam. I would think it would work on the clam as well. Adam

I also layed down the strips of non skid tape. 9 years and still there and still no slipping.

An old piece of rubberbacked carpet cut to fit the open spaces works, but I don't recommend using the same piece for more than one season.

I like the adhesive non skid strip idea. I'm gonna do that.

On my 4x8 I used a door mat that is about 4x4 or so and cut out areas for the holes. I think I got them for a couple bucks a piece at menards last year.

You can buy rubberized undercoating just about anywhere. That might work. It comes in a spray can and is used to spray in the wheelwells of your car. Good luck.

    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
    • wow.....thats cool......................hmmm idea for da next bear, whenever i get drawn and get one !!!!!!!!!
    • Well no reason to come back out of the woods or off the lake ice fishing this year at noon on Sundays!  😕
    • I don't get the concept that we won't get anything in return for him.  If you are using that theory look at Kawai Leonard...San Antonio seemed to get something for a guy that everyone knew was not gonna work with San Antonio and everyone said they would only get something from the Lakers but Toronto stepped up made a play and the word is that they may be the front runner on resigning him!  Look at Paul George...he was in the same boat that he was not gonna resign with anyone and the Thunder took a chance and now they have him on the books for years to come cuz he changed his mind.  Players in the NBA seem to change every month as to what they want to do.  Get rid of Butler, get some good assets, and move on.
    • I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.
