Awlgrip on Deck?

All,

We looked at a boat recently that had had its decks Awlgripped. I wondered if this would affect the non-skid properties and whether it would hold up well, or need to be renewed frequently. Any opinions? Is this a common practice?

Thanks,

Carrie

painting decks

We repainted our decks with Interlux 2-part polyurethane; similar to awlgrip. We added grit to the mix to make it nonskid, since the sanding preparation did smooth out a lot of the molded-in nonskid pattern. It has lasted for about five years now, and is starting to wear in spots that get heavy chafe. We'll do some spot patching this spring. The only way to tell if the paint is too slippery is to go stand on the deck.

Alwgrip is about as good a paint as there is for "holding up". All paints need some type of additive for non skip. Without an additive it will be quite slippery when wet.
