    New traction mats...

    How do I get the glue off of the deck to put the new mats on? This looks like a pain in the tail. I'm going to try Goo Gone and razor blades.

    Get a plastic scraper. Use that with whatever chemical you find that works. Razor blades are no good

    Although it is good to get most of it all, it's not really necessary. Just use the contact glue (red can) and glue over top. It will soften up the old glue and bind to it as well.

    3M adhesive remover won't damage the gell coat? That seems too easy.

    I just contacted 3M, they have confirmed that this product is exactly what I need. I'm on it!

    New traction mats...

    Yep what Mighty Mouse said,you don't need to get all the old glue off ,use the Hydroturf recommended contact cement and apply to both deck and mat surfaces for a good bond..

    I recently changed out my mats to the more aggressive diamond pattern ,holding well all season..
