Are you serious frank??! Hey - here's a difficult one for you: is there anything to make your boat less slippy??! I started off hiking at the front of my topper, and after two secs found myself somewhere at the back!!  Bit worried bout that.... ho hum!

two words.... pro-grip.
Failing that I have yast quantities of stippled 'interdeck' on my boat


Disclamer: may be   a) not class legal, and   b) a really bad idea on a topper

Nah what u want for a topper or any other boat if ur not allowed progrip is some decent surf wax works a treat!  and it even smells good for those lightwind days when ur sleeping on the gunwalls

Board wax is ok if you layer it correctly on smooth surfaces, but where theres already a texture like on a topper or laser deck it sucks

i always found it worked for me used to put it inside the laser cockpit to help me lock myself into the boat on those windy runs

Sex Wax also known as Surf Wax is the answer.  Progrip just adds weight.
