Non Skid Paint

I have a boat that currently has non-skid paint. I want to repaint it and I am not sure what type of paint is the best and how to remove the old paint to reapply the new. Can anyone give me some advice?

I re-painted the decks of my boat after a re-core job. The project is documented here (prep and priming) and here (finish and non-skid paint)

We've had good results (two seasons now) with "Interdeck" single part poly on our cockpit sole.

"Aqua strip" is a decent (green) stripper that won't harm the underlying fiberglass.

I've also used Interdeck on a few boats and I really like it. It's easy to apply and it has a good texture.

If it's a particle-based paint in fairly good condition (you didn't say) - just sand it smooth, gently, using coarse paper, prime and paint on the new. I was surprised at how easy it was to do on our boat.

I'd say go with "Interdeck".. good luck with your project!

Beautiful job, Shim.

Last month I looked at a Pearson 31-2 on which the owner had repainted the non-skid himself. I never did get an answer to the product but it looks like he used diving board paint (gray on an originally biege deck). Bare spots, brush marks, overlaps of different density/color. It looked like he used a grimy brush and added road dirt as the grit. Took $10,000 off the value of the boat.

Take your time and do it right.

Trust me - it looks MUCH worse in person.
