painting non skid

I'd like to re-paint the non skid on deck & in the cockpit this fall. Eventually I'd like to get the rest of the deck painted but I don't want to tackle all that right now but need to get the non skid done.
Anything I need to be aware of in painting the non skid considering I'll be doing the rest in a year or 2?

Suggestions welcome on what's the latest in do it yourself non skid paints and painting.

Thanks

Ed,
I plan on using Kiwi Grip...

Good luck, Cap'n!

I have used Interdeck from Interlux. It is basicly Brightsides with grit added to it. Had really good luck with application and seems to be wearing well 3 years later.

Use a very course sandpaper to rough up the current non-skid. (by hand only)

Hog beat me to it. You could also epoxy all the non skid to waterproof if your using the Kiwi product which comes with it's own application rollers.

I'll be doing the deck paint and non skid on Oh Joy once I get her stripped. Cool thing is the old paint and NS is coming off in sheets all the way down to the original canvas with the heat gun. Amazing how good of shape that 47 year old canvas is in.

I used the Interdeck as well...works pretty well. Easy to apply. NOTE: Keep stirring it regularly.

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.

Could you elaborate on the waterproofing? I don't understand. The fiberglass decks are solid and the paint seems to be in good shape, just burnished.

Use 3m blue tape to tape off perimeter of nonskid. Degrease, alcohol wipe nonskid area very well before sanding the nonskid. After nonskid is prepped remove 3m blue tape and retape the lines with fineline tape. Press down hard. If you forgo this step the nonskid can creep under the tape and make the whole job look like trash. Take your time and don't cut corners on preparation.
Read the links at the bottom of my blog for info I compiled on this very subject. There are alot of pics and lessons learned.

Smile Here is a comparison

Of different non skid products.

Follow the link and then scroll down to my post. I don't have anything to do with any of the products. I was just trying to find what works and bang for the buck. Oh! and I hate to paint

I've used Awlgrip and Griptex on a previous boat, and recently used the Interdeck in our cockpit after removing some treadmaster type material.

The Awlgrip/Griptex looked great but its nonskid characteristics were only moderately good, but it improved with time as some of the paint "wore" away.

The nonskid characteristics of the Interdeck is quite impressive, good on boots, shoes, barefeet whatever. It seems to be standing up well too, the only knock we have is that it's tough to keep clean if you're in a dusty/dirty area.
