Durabak Feedback

Reader Bob Edgley freshened up the deck of his Alberg 35 with Durabak nonskid coating. He gave it thumbs up for performance but said it’s hard to keep clean.

I want to comment on my experiences with Durabak since you recently tested nonskid deck coatings (PS, January 2012). I coated my decks with Durabak about 14 months ago. I’m happy with the durability and nonskid performance, but I’m lukewarm in three areas: It is hard to keep clean; it holds stains; and the color fades fairly rapidly.
