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.

I just sanded all the old paint and non-skid pattern off... took a long time.

Re: Painting the deck with interlux perfection and intergrip

you just need to sand down to the point where nothing is shiny anymore. If you are at all worried about the bond between the old paint and primer, sand it down to the primer and re-coat with Epoxy Primekote.

I re-did my deck last year with perfection and had a lot of success through trial and error. You can read about it all here:

Using the Interlux 2 part primer after sanding as advised above.

Interlux has a wonderful tech support toll free number. Is somewhere on the www.yachtpaint.com site. They will tell you exactly what you need to do. The down side is that it is very difficult to find the number on their web site.

Contact | Interlux
