Hull & Deck Painting

On my boat the previous owner had the hull and deck painted. Paint is in poor condition and plan to repaint with a 2 part epoxy.

If I take a rag with acetone on it the deck paint will immediately come off easily onto the rag. The non skid on the deck is imprinted into the glass and is deep (sanding would not be practical). What should I do to prep the deck for two part epoxy?

When the acetone rag is wiped on the painted hull- no paint comes off. The hull was probably painted with a two part epoxy, but not sure. How should the hull be prepped.
Regards

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

I would think you'll want to use a solvent wash to try to get rid of the deck paint.. something nasty and more powerful that acetone (Interlux has several, wear the proper respirators)

As for the hull paint, I'd get a small sample of the paint you intend to use, and apply a small amount (somewhere less visible.. under the counter maybe?) and let it set up to see if the underlying paint is attacked.. if it seems stable and the surface is otherwise smooth then a scuff sand might be all you need. You may still want to consider primer first, but I'd consult the paint supplier about that.

Thanks faster- sounds like a good plan.

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

One other thought.. the more powerful solvent(s) may indeed attack the hull coating.. watch for that if it runs off the deck...

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

Most good paints are polyurethanes like Interlux Perfection, Awlgrip, and Alexseal. Epoxy paint isn't very common for good reason - it chalks quickly and colors fade faster than other types of paint in my experience.
