Any recommendations for a good painter to awlgrip decks of older egret? Want it done professionally and timely. I am in central Florida but willing to travel for the best job. Many Thanks

I totally agree with Egret's Landing. I ended up with Awlgrip done at factory after a build sheet screw up. It's supposedly "extra coarse" nona skid which is the most aggresive and it sucks. Looks great but sucks as non skid. It was never great and after two years its about the same as the gel coat non skid after ten. Several people have slipped on the deck and I really smashed my leg last week on the edge of the rod locker. I'm planning to do Kiwi deck very soon and get really rough with it. It's no fun fishing on a boat that you're scared to move around on..

Must be operator variability. I fish a Moccasin that recently came from the factory with Awlgrip and the cockpit is ridiculously coarse. So much so that the owner is thinking how he might soften it a bit (actually, I really like it). The cap deck, however, is more like my gelcote on the Egret 18'9. I guess it depends on who did it and how much media they put in the process.

My awl grip was a bit slick when it was new but is considerably less slick after about a year of use.

It makes a great gator hunting platform. It was a hassle hauling his 11.5 ft 400lb carcass in, maybe I should mount a hoist? j/k

How would it get rougher over time when it's the media they add that creates the increased friction and over time that is what slowly wears away?
