Re: Hull & Deck Painting

Hey there everyone, what a great resource.
As of this past week I'm the proud owner of a 1974 Cal 29 that is very much in need of a deck painting. How would you go about prepping a deck that has decent paint in some areas and worn down to bare black in others? Also, any recommendations for the textured, non-skid areas (which actually look halfway decent still)?
Thanks!

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

I used interdeck on my non-skid as at 20 months into the refit i was NOT gonna LOSE another season

While it requires some sanding and cleaning it is very easy to use and very forgiving

Any of the better two-part paints would require bad and out removal of all the deck hardware and a massive prep effort as the increase in quality makes the paint VERY FUSSY

You have to plan your goals for the boat as there is a limit to how much money it makes sense to spend on it due the limit of what it can be insured for

For example it was important to me to have good looking topside paint and it got the full epoxy primer and two tone Awlgrip and the huge amount of time and money that job required
