Slipping is no fun. You’re going to perform better if your feet stay where you put them. That’s where Harken Marine Grip comes in. It’s a thin, nonabrasive grip tape used to prevent slipping on deck or on dock. This durable grip tape stands up to harsh marine conditions and won’t get hot in the sunlight. Here’s a video we made to show you how to apply it:

Oli Hale, a Blockhead from the UK, put Marine Grip on his Club 420. Here’s what he had to say about it: “The design of the tape and the patterns you are able to lay out look really good. My crew Tom has told me that the tape is nice and grippy and does not rub on your wetsuit when you slide over it. Many thanks for a great product, here are a couple of photos of it installed on my 420.”
