Anyone know where i can buy the ground- up, trowel on rubber decking that some of the boat dealers and bed liner places are installing. i believe i can do the work my self if can find out where to buy the stuff. i was quoted a price of 1500.00 to have it done, when i asked where they got the stuff, of course they wouldnt tell me and told me i probably couldnt do it without screwin it up anyway, now i really want to do it my self. i believe its called safe deck or something like that. any help on this would be appreciated, thanks, SSMM

I did my own boat, but had the shop walk me through the process and used their tools and products. There are a lot more "steps" to it than you might think. You will not be able to get the top smooth and level with out knowing the 'Trick' to that part. Consider concrete, you can get in it the form easy enough, but getting it perfectly level and looking right is not so easy. Now imigine the concrete is super sticky and sticks to your trowle like syrup ? Now imigine the concrete emits harmfull and toxic vapors while your working with it ? Now imagine the concrere will go from pored to set up in 30 minites.

I'd shop the price around, but if I was to do it again, I would not do it again.

I'd give Glenn @ Boatright Marine a call. He may still be doing this in his shop, and/or providing the guidance and materials for a DIY job.
