Question Deck reconditioning for my Tartan 30

The deck on my Tartan 30 is in need of reconditioning, including new nonskid surface. It has never been painted before.From what I've read so far the two part epoxie paint is the way to go. Should I use the same paint for both and just use the additive for the nonskid parts of the deck?

I would definitely check out whatever paint and additive you're planning on using on a piece of plywood first, to find out whether it is going to be too rough, or not rough enough a non-skid surface before actually going ahead with it.

I don't see any real reason against using the same two-part epoxy paint for both the non-skid areas and the regular deck areas, but I would also check with the manufacturer of the paint and see what they recommend.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

deck surface

I refinished my deck last year with a product called DURABAK( It uses ground rubber particles as the nonskid; I was quite pleased with the results
