Rick - The old saw about "you only need to prime the areas you don't want to redo next year" is even more true in the harsh marine environment than it is on land. ABSOLUTELY prime!
We used Interlux "Brightside" and the corresponding sanded paint for nonskid areas, 2 coats of paint over 2 coats of primer, 3 years ago and it has stood up very well. The label directions, IIRC, provide pretty good guidance.
