Deck paint/ epoxy???

Ok, i have searched and searched this forum. I have seen so many opinions on what to use and how to do it that i am even more unsure about how to treat my 39 year old deck than ever..

My Boat is 39 years old and someone panted the deck before me and it looks like crap! It looks more like cracked glass than paint because it has dried out and looks like a house out of the 30's.

So, i need to sand down to the fiberglass/gel coat that i know. Then what??
What should i prep with?
What should i paint with? Gun, roller, brush, Bucket and mop, lol???
What type/ name brand paint,epoxy,??
how should i then seal it??


Now, the boat is in the water. Do i need to pull it out???

These are the questions that keep me up at night !
all of the windows are out right now so i would like to move on this soon..
