over gelcoat

Mine went over gelcoat, call Tom and ask him about the paint you have on and see what he says.

It was not that hard a job but very time consuming since you have to let it dry a day between coats. If you are doing it with two colours with 3 or 4 coats each it is slow. Take as much hardware off as possible - easier than masking in the long run and you can at least rebed (I also potted all the holes with epoxy (balsa core deck). The vinyl (automotive) tape is critical and the roller they provide (a stucco roller of all things) really helps to get the no -skid looking good. They provided both fine and coarse compound for no-skid; the first coat I used both, after that only the fine and it is about right. You also have to figure out the sequence to paint things that allows you to get off the boat when you are done - not always easy.

I have gotten many compliments on the job.

nonskid areas

Did you use a flattening agent to dull the gloss in the non-skid areas?

no flattening agent

I asked about that and Tom, the Signature Finish guru - I think he is the president, chief chemist and mail boy - said he could put some in but that it was not needed. The many random angles in the no-skid mean that there is no glare

thanks

thanks very much for all your information. It has been very helpful. I just recieved today an 8 ounce package of the Signature paint, along with the other components (rollers, etc.) that I will use for testing this winter. Based on your experience, it looks like a very good product and will help solve my painting problem.
