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.
