Re: Painting right over gelcoat, no sanding necessary

Yes if you get it really clean the primer will stick

Just keep in mind the paint will never hold up like the gelcoat did and there is NO going back

FWIW on the Cal 29 I a very happy with tan interdeck as I can live with the life and the rubber particles in the paint make a very good non-skid

I have not had any adhesion issues with GOOD clean and paint NO primer

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
