Good job. Another satisfied Interdex user.. Did you sand your deck at all? I pretty much annihilated by molded non-skid, but that was only to removed the last guys paint attempt. It says it sticks to properly de-greased gel-coat. I would bet Banshi here used a drill attachment paint mixer. I did a couple small sections hand stirring that looked like crap. Stir stir stir!!!
