Thanks Craig for your response. Having a product custom made in a spray can format makes a lot of sense. Just use it and dispose of any leftover material. There's still the issue of aerated material, but it's not too hard to work with mask and a bit of breeze at your back to avoid most of the nastiness.

I've weighed a full set of deck (from behind the back straps to near the mast track), nose, rail, and tail pads. Something like 3 ounces ... less than the weight of a significant repair or any ingested water.
That doesn't sound like much dry. I wonder what it would weigh after it got wet?

It's EVA. It stays dry.

My thinking would be that the biggest weight saving for many sailors would be their own adipose.

Or lunch.

Update: I went for the waffle pad with monster paint non skid on the nose and tail. Thanks for the tips.

Have not tested in the mud yet.

Hey Roland, that looks great. If the forecast holds you should be able to mud test today. Very Happy

That looks nice, Luc! Yer gonna love the feel and the foot and deck protection that provides. I'm glad you didn't try to cut your pads to exactly conform to the original pads; that triples the level of effort and looks corny, as I learned from experience. I hope you laid a tiny bead of clear non-yellowing goop around the edges to prevent lifting in the long term.

Hey mike:

Just cutting for my layout took a while cant imagine getting it to conform to the existing pads.

Did not know about the goop but now i do for next time. I bought my pads with peel and stick already on the bottom would you add goop as well?

I always do. It can't hurt, it's cheap, and it takes a couple of minutes. The best product I've found so far is clear Homax Professional Welder adhesive. Lowe's carries it, and I'm guessing many other convenient stores carry it. I run a quick, tiny bead directly from the tube, just enough to seal the joint line where the pad meets the deck.
