Standard Grip Tape or Textured Foam
LilliPad’s Standard Grip Tape is black and accented with a LilliPad Diving Board logo in silver or white. The grip tape looks and feels much like a “skate-board style” grip tape which is course to the hand but comfortable for feet and provides appropriate grip to safely use the LilliPad Diving Board. With average use and proper storage, (use of a protective cover when not in use) standard grip tape typically lasts 3-5 years.
LilliPad’s Textured Foam is made from industry leading SeaDek©. Our textured foam can be ordered in a variety of colors to match the look of your boat. SeaDek Foam is comfortable to the touch and will not pull on the fibers of swimsuits if someone sits on the platform yet, offers excellent traction for safe use of your LilliPad Diving Board. In the harshest conditions, LilliPad’s Textured Foam can be expected to last 5-7 years. If the diving board is properly cared for and covered a longer life is likely.
Which mounting kit is right for me, Surface or Under Mount?
The Under Floor Mounting system is typically used on boats which allow access to the underside of the flooring surface and with proper spacing for the placement of the mounting plates without obstruction. In addition, when considering the mounting location, the main frame of the diving board must be positioned on top of a cross member; thus a cross member must come between one of the three plates (as pictured, below).
The Surface Mounting kit is used on boats which do not easily permit access to the underside of the floor or on boats with substantial bracing that will not allow for use of the Under Floor Mounting system. Surface mounts are also used on all fiberglass applications.
LilliPad’s Surface Mounting System uses your boats crossmembers (for pontoons) or the strength of the fiberglass surface to create a solid mount for your diving board. Refer to our Installation Manual for further details on properly securing surface mount plates to your boat.
