I'm topside painting obsessed: Before & After

I got a pint of that almond off-white and white topside paint and have been going bananas. I re-painted the entire cockpit seating surfaces and plan to do the deck this weekend.

One thing I have learned - by adding two or so coats over an old non-skid paint job, you really lose some grip.

I think the best before & after was the pedestal:

Re: I'm topside painting obsessed: Before & After

I have a 1981 Catalina 27 which I purchased last year. The fiberglass was showing through on part of the topside. I did not want to spend a lot of money for cosmetic purposes. I found a product called KiwiGrip and was pleased with it. I used a brush to paint the non skid and this stuff was great. It covered the fiberglass, cleaned up with water and acts as non skid. One quart covered all the non skid. Not to be confused with AwlGrip.

I have just been using a Rust Oleum (which is probably bottom of the barrel but one week in, it looks awesome everywhere).

Re: I'm topside painting obsessed: Before & After

I did my pedestal with white VALSPAR house paint and it has done great

IN simple paint the Interlux interdeck is a better low cost deck paint because the Rubber ? or whatever particles are mixed in the correct amount

I had my hatch powder coated as it gets way to much saltwater and is way to much work for a shortcut

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Well, this Rust-Oleum is technically a "Marine Topside" paint. We'll see how she wears...

Re: I'm topside painting obsessed: Before & After

Lets NOT confuse deck with topside

As we walk on the deck and the topside is hull above the water line which takes massive abuse

Re: I'm topside painting obsessed: Before & After

The pedestal is old edson and has irreplaceable A4 controls built in,it would have turned into and epic project to powder coat

So it got the scrape all the lose paint and see what happens and the Valspar is very forgiving and is a one step house paint which I also used 100% on the interior in grey and white
