Bravo slippery sitting

Post subject:  Bravo slippery sitting

Often times sailing the Bravo I find my body "slipping" back towards the stern....even though I use the foot straps. Has anyone applied any non-slip type material to the top of each hull (rear portion) to prevent this slippage? Any ideas/suggestions would be welcome and greatly appreciated....including the best materials and adhesive for this purpose. I was thinking of possibly using the Wave blue seat material.

I've never considered the slipping to be that much of an issue until recently flying downwind whilst hanging on for dear life. I might consider doing something similar. I would look at using some closed cell EVA foam - same stuff they use on SUPS and surf boards. It's everywhere these days, in loads of colours and relatively cheap.

Purchased some closes EVA cell foam from Agenda Surf. Worked out very well just make sure you order the adhesive for "plastic". I would post a picture but I cannot figure out how to....

I've used a H16 rail kit to upgrade my Bravo and T2, works really great. I don't have a photo of my Bravo but here is my T2.
