Non-slip adhesive matting
Took me about 2 months to get hold of this stuff. It’s a large sheet of non-slip adhesive matting for the roof of the narrowboat.
It’s like gunwhale tape. But much fatter.
It’s got and adhesive back.
It takes 3 people to fit this sheet. I know because I did it with 1 person, and it’s completely full of bubbles. You need a roller also, to be fair. This stuff will tear your hands apart if you try and smooth it with your hand, or anything with else for that matter. You need to lay it with 2…… and roll it with one!
Too late now.
Simple 5mm tapping out into the roof.
Got some medium thread lock and put it onto the zinc bolts.
Felt fairly happy about the finish.
Finally added the two batteries to the battery bank.
Now got a full complement of batteries. Fit for watching TV on cold winter nights in front of the fire.Click here for reuse options!
