I just finished painting my deck using the Interlux non skid additive and their one part polyurethane topside paint. It looks good with two coats, was very easy to apply, just rolled on. We'll see how it holds up.

I repainted non-skid on my deck over the summer. I used the Intedeck (sp) from interlux.It seems to have very good non-skip properties, was easy to apply, and looks great. We did a rough sand w 60 grit paper by hand over existing moulded non-skid, taped it off, primed and painted. The only issue I have noticed is the "sand" in the paint seems to rub off a little with wear and tear. I can see a very fine glitter like appearance on dark cloths after sitting/scooting around on deck. With the ease of use I'm not too worried about it.

We are getting ready to do the same thing on our boat my Question is how do you apply the second coat if you can't walk on it? And do you have to thin the Interdeck or is it ready to apply right out of the can?

Nonskid

I did mine last year with Interlux interdeck. My nonskid is in a bunch of sections instead of one big one. I did 2 sections at a time so I could maneuver around the cockpit without touching the wet paint. I rolled it right out of the can. After one summer, it still looks great.

I used right out of the can. I taped and painted the sections in two phases. 1) forward of shrouds 2) aft of shrouds. It just worked out that way because of time. I tried to keep walking on it to a min., but you almost have to a little bit.

I had it easy on my boat since she is only 23'. I just started on the stb quarter and worked my way forward, working from the cockpit and atop the cabin. Once I got to the foredeck, I started at the bow and worked back wiping my foot prints with mineral spirits as I went back. I still had a wet edge on the stb side and then worked around the port side in the same manner. Don't know how well this would work on a larger boat.

I'm doing mine now, I'm using interlux Brightside with Non-skid additive, but I'm doing the entire deck, I did the entire foredeck ( encluding the non skid areas ) with two coats Brightside ( no additive ), let it sit for a week, then went back and taped off the deck and two coated the Non skid areas with the same color plus non skid additive, this weekend I will do one last coat of N/S and remount the hdwr....looks like a mllion bucks so far

Thanks for all the information, I read on the can that you can put the second coat on in 20 hrs but walking dryness is 4 days. Does this mean i have to only do one half of the boat at a time. since i have to wait 4 days to be back oon it. thanks.

One more question what kind of roller did you use to roll the paint on with?
