Painting the deck with interlux perfection and intergrip
I am redoing the deck paint on my catalina 27. The previous owner painted the deck and used interlux perfection, but first of all he did not take of the deck hardware and he painted over the non skid. So the foredeck is more or less a skating rink. I have been removing the old paint painstakingly from the non skid but i am only half way. So my question is, do I need to remove it all to sand down the non skid underneath and then painting the intergrip on top?
Also I am not sure what type of prime the previous owner used, it is green and I have the feeling the bond between the deck paint and the primer is not that great. But i might be to much of a perfectionist.
Any suggestions and advice would be highly appreciated.
I am also re-coring the deck under the stanchions and under the eyebolts for the lower shrouds. I am hoping to replace the eyebolts with u-bolts.
Thanks everyone for the advice.
