Hull & Deck Painting

On my boat the previous owner had the hull and deck painted. Paint is in poor condition and plan to repaint with a 2 part epoxy.

If I take a rag with acetone on it the deck paint will immediately come off easily onto the rag. The non skid on the deck is imprinted into the glass and is deep (sanding would not be practical). What should I do to prep the deck for two part epoxy?

When the acetone rag is wiped on the painted hull- no paint comes off. The hull was probably painted with a two part epoxy, but not sure. How should the hull be prepped.
