painting a old bristol 30.

Hi lets assume my boat is in need of a paint everywhere.
I know how to paint the hull but what about the fibreglass deck.
How would i change all the handrails etc to stainless steel without risking water seepage into the fibreglass.
Cheers.

Yep, rebed all the hardware with butyl. Probably pull the old handrails, fill the holes, then paint redrill for the new stainless handrails, countersink and bed with butyl.

Kiwigrip, or Interdeck, or the like. I obviously have to rebed all my hardware as well, as I have a leak somewhere. The deck on my boat looks like 10 miles of bad road. I've seen the results of deck jobs, and am pretty impressed.
