options for painting my deck

Hello,

I bought a 1986 J-22 a few years ago that had several soft areas on the deck. I fixed these and then painted over the repair areas. The deck is now solid but most of the repair areas are on a gray non-skid surface, and the deck looks patchy. I painted the repair areas but of course the white paint I applied look shinier than the original white deck.

I'm wondering what options I have so that I can make the deck look more uniform. I suppose that if I wanted to make the boat look brand new, I would remove all deck equipment, condition the surface, paint the whole thing and then lay down a non-skid surface. However, that seems like a lot of work and I wonder if there are any easier options.

Would love to hear any thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Re: options for painting my deck

I just used some of this semi-gloss white Pettit one-part paint on my transom because my neighbor at the marina had a pint or so leftover from doing his deck.

Pettit EasyPoxy Topside Boat Paint

It came out ok. I just needed to clean things up before I stuck the name on the boat. Definitely looks better than the rest of the boat now.




Can't verify how long it lasts, though.

I also think it would make things rather slick.

FYI: She's getting hauled for a bottom job this week. That's why I wasn't careful with the line at the bottom ...

Live with the patchy look until you need to rebed the deck hardware. Then take everything off, prep, and paint the whole thing. It is a LOT of work to do it right. Consider a 2 part paint for the deck. Will wear longer.

If you have some pictures, someone might have some nifty solutions that are quicker.

Kiwi Grip works awsome, I redid all the nonskid on my Corvette. Easy to apply quick to dry and covered up all the ole diamond nonskid. And it comes in grey, Prep is time consuming but what prep isnt, I cleaned and taped day 1 and painted it on day 2, using the boat on day 3. All for about $240.

CG, how does that Kiwi grip feel on your bear feet and knees. I'm thinking of going with that stuff, but, am worried it would hurt.

The amount of grip can vary to super aggressive for the serious racers or can be knocked down with sand paper to suit. It doesnt really bother my feet or knees but I don't really crawl around onThe deck to much mabe on rum nite

Thanks all for the responses. Do people ever paint over the non-skid surfaces? Or is that generally not recommended?

Re: options for painting my deck

In my (limited) experience, non-skid is never painted except with new non-skid paint.

I know it is never waxed (d'oh!). I clean mine every spring with baking soda and a scrub brush; I tape it off before I wax the shiny deck areas.

I don't know of any product that can paint molded-in non-skid and still retain its fundemental property.

Actually there's a product 'Woody Wax' that is intended for nonskid, it protects against mildew etc without seriously compromising nonskid properties. Haven't used it myself but our neighbour is happy with it. Won't do anything for a non uniform colour match, of course.

Have heard lots of good about Kiwi Grip, and have had pretty good results with Interlux Interdeck, a pre-grit-loaded version of Brightside. Easy application and good nonskid properties too, but it does grab onto dirt.
