From our satisfied customers:
"We are very pleased with the results, The deck looks great and a single coat covered the unevenly colored deck (mostly white with brown patches of epoxy where I'd made repairs). Here is a tip other customers might find helpful. I used a 4" plastic squeegee-type slotted trowel to evenly spread the goop before my wife rolled in the texture using the roller. It allowed me to spread an even layer and worked quite well. Thanks."
"KiwiGrip was a dream to use. It is a quick, no-mess way of cleaning up tired old decks and applying a superior non-skid finish. It covered all of the spots where I have moved deck fittings and filled the unwanted holes with epoxy. They literally vanish under KiwiGrip. So far my KiwiGrip decks have endured record heat, kids, burning embers, beer, ice, snow, and sea otters without a mark. My next boat will also have KiwiGrip on the decks."
"The project is going great! Kiwigrip is the best invention ever and sure is a wonderful alternative to the normal non-skid do it yourselfers! I've had a lot of friends and other boat owners drop by to see the deck and they are all in awe of how pretty it looks. I'm sure you'll be getting more orders from Hawaii since they all asked for your email address and I showed them the info you sent me on application. It really sells itself. I did find however that it doesn't stick to well to 5200 sealant, but that's no big deal since the application itself is so easy and it really does look great and after removing the excess 5200 it goes on great."
"Have attached several pictures of KiwiGrip at end of one season (in NE). This is a fabulous product; ease of application, traction/grip and durability. Given the fact that this is a very dated design (1977 C&C 27), I felt that the results are extremely gratifying, and should prove to be an extremely attractive and economical solution for the plethora of older boats that are suffering from the same maladies as Capricious . Please note that the entire application took no more than two 6 hours days, by myself... over a weekend. I would consider myself "handy", certainly not a professional."
"Last weekend we were ready to apply the Kiwi Grip. We taped and Kiwi Gripped the boat all in that one day. The Kiwi Grip was easy and fun to apply! My husband HATES to paint!!! He even decided to help. He painted and I rolled. The breeze that day got heavier and the Kiwi Grip started drying so following right behind him worked well. My husband was so jazzed as I'd remove the tape off a section! He was like a boy on Christmas morning! Each section brought dramatic results! By time we got done, my husband said what I was thinking, "This looks like a new boat!" We were both soooo thrilled!
We didn't go back to the boat until this past weekend. We were tired and also wanted to let the boat set and cure. We had so many people at the dock stop this weekend and comment how nice the boat looks. Many knew I was using Kiwi Grip on the non-skid and were eager to see the results. My husband was singing the praises of Kiwi Grip and me to everyone that stopped and admired the boat. I thought he should start selling it because that's what it sounded like!"
"We KiwiGripped our decks in New Zealand in early 2005. Since then, we’ve lived aboard for 9 months and put 12,000 miles under our keel. After removing our life-raft, we noticed no difference between our high-traffic areas and the area under the raft which hasn’t seen any traffic at all. WOW! We’re very pleased with KiwiGrip’s durability!"
"KiwiGrip was very easy to work with. I had to cover a badly damaged and blistered deck on my boat and after a mediocre fibreglass repair job on my part, I applied KiwiGrip over the deck and it covered all my imperfections and it looks and wears excellently. I have been recommending it to my friends."
"KG came out nice. I worked solo--and fast. Had no other options. Early indications are that it provides a good grippy surface. Pictures are attached."
"My dad's project in Panama went great. That was over a year ago and he is still totally happy with the product. I am sold on it and when I get around to doing it to this Cal 46, I will definately be using KiwiGrip."
We are thrilled with the results & have had plenty of company aboard this summer. We hose it down after in the slip & that's it. I have some left over product in an air tight container for future touch up if needed. Love Kiwi Grip.
Best regards & keep in touch especially if you develop any new products."
"Check out the review on the Cat we recently launched (Photos link below). Your KIWIGRIP is on the deck and in the shower toilets and also under the bridgedeck.
Feel free to use our cat in your advertising. The Non-Slip worked very well although we need to brush up on our application technique a bit. The builder likes it!!
"Wow! What a product!
I wanted to share my Kiwi Grip story with you, as I just made my second purchase of the product. I just finished a complete re-finish of a small “Sunfish clone” for my son. The boat was in very poor shape when it was given to me. We worked together to completely re-do, including Kiwi Grip on the non-skid.
I believe the results speak for themselves.
I liked it so much that I am now going to re-do the non-skid on my Catalina 30!"
