Hydra Deck Application Instructions
Step 1: Before starting installation, lay out the pads in their designated locations to verify that the fit and spacing is correct. Determine spacing between pads during layout (usually about 1/4’’-1/2’’ apart).
Step 2: For best results, use alcohol or acetone and a clean rag to remove any dirt, grease, sunscreen, wax, sweat or excess residue. Scrub well and let dry completely.
*If the boat is new, repeat cleaning several times before installation.
Step 3: Peel back part of the paper backing from the back of the pad. Place the exposed adhesive part in the correct location. Repeat this until the paper backing is completely removed and the pad is adhered. Once the pad is in place, firmly press down and apply even pressure all over. Walk all over the pad to make sure its stable and fixed to the boat. Firmly run your finger along the outer edge of the pad to secure it and ensure no water can permeate the pad. Do not pull, stretch or compress pad during installation to prevent distortion.
*Do not attempt to move the pad once its adhered to the boat.
