Anyone ever try this for a re-make of non-slip deck?

Has anyone ever tried cutting vinyl window screen to shape, laying it on the deck in a bed of rolled wet epoxy, and, when cured, painting over the result? Just curious...seems like it could work...probably will try it since I already have the materials on hand...unless someone in here has tried it and can give me good reason not to...I could just do a small test square...

I've a feeling it wouldn't wear very well, and would look pretty rough after a season... no hard facts to back that up, but it's not really very tough stuff. For reasonable money I think you'll find that Interlux Interdeck will do a pretty nice job.

Hmm.thanks fast...Interlux deck sounds expensive but I'll check it out...I like the idea of laying out some kind of pattern material cut to size for each panel..but I'lm unfamiliar with the various methods on the market and need to do more research...don't have a budget of more than 120 bucks I'd say for this project. if I can get away with that...and have something decent that will last with regular upkeep.

I wonder if you could use a slow-setting epoxy, let it set to the "tacky" stage, roll some sort of mesh out (screen, hardware cloth, whatever), press the mesh into the surface of the epoxy, then lift the mesh back up -- leaving the imprint of the pattern on the surface. Kinda the way "stamped" concrete patterns are made.

I know it's an old technique, but I'm still fond of the non-skid results by mixing quartz sand with a topsides paint. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Capatin Force,

There is some merit to your "old technique" that is immediately obvious and that is that one will not have continuous build-up of epoxy as you would over time and many applications...that stuff is hard to sand afterall...when your re-painting the whole deck..and its alot cheaper to be sure...am wondering what kind of paint do you guys use Captain?

What kind of boat, or more specifically, how much non=slip surface area? I did the non-slip on a 1980 Hunter 30 with one quart of Interlux Interdeck and am pleased with the result so far. Granted it's only been one season. I have also used the sand technique. Make a "shaker" by punching holes in a plastic tub i.e. a margarine container or Tupperware and shake sand over the freshly applied paint. Let dry, brush off excess with a soft brush and apply second coat of paint.

I use Interlux Bristol Beige Topsides paint. The sand won't stay in suspension for long so I do stir it on ocassion while painting. I've heard others say that they spread the sand on the wet paint from a salt shaker with enlarged holes, but I've never tried that. One person said that he shakes regular table salt on his wet paint and that this produces a rough surface to the paint when the salt dissolves. Sounds interesting, but I've never tried that either. Like most, I tend to stick to what I am accustomed to and what works for me. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

A quart of Interlux brightsides paint and a small container of intergrip additive will handle your non skid requirements for less than $60. You'd be hard pressed to buy the epoxy and the screen for that kind of money, and then you would still have to paint over it.

So you just pick a a color of Interlux brightsides,,,grab some intergrip additive and then prep your areas ...sanding first to get a good bite I would guess...then proceed with appropriate tape/shielding for the areas you want left alone...and apply with...a brush..a roller? A smaller roller like 3-inch wide or so sounds like it might do the job...I'll save the brushes for other things...I appreciate the info guys...
