Two tone deck paint thoughts?

Hey guys,

I'm looking to get your thoughts and opinions on a two tone deck paint job. Ie, painting the non skid surface something like cream or beige, and then painting the other areas a different color (ie, white). I'm going to use Interlux nonskid paint product, and probably interlux Brightsides for the "skid" areas. The current deck's paint is an abomination, so it has to be redone.

These are the colors available for the non skid paint:



This is a pic of my boat. It's a 1979 Cat 22. I think the boat has a nice retro appearance, so I'd like the deck to scream retro too. Honestly I'd be fine doing white on both surfaces, but if you guys think a cream for the non skid is more appropriate, then I'm open to that idea too.



Thank you kindly for any input.

RG

I like the blue hull. I think the gray nonskid would look good with that, but I think doing all white would look fine, too.

DON'T get the grey... far too hot underfoot in the sun when it's nice enough to go barefoot!

White in white looks clean, and if you follow the panel pattern it still will have some definition.

I think all white will look too bright, the gray too dark..I'd do white with an off white non-skid, maybe the beige would do.

You might think about a new sailcover to complete the look...

Very nice, clean-looking boat you have there, congrats. With the color of your hull I would think the only colors to "match" the theme would be the gray or white.
I hate to interrupt your post radio but I thought of it while looking at the colors you have there. My question would be: Is there a reason so many boats have white decks besides the fact its probably cheapest for the factory to make and of the sun-related advantages? Looking at the gray color Radio has I think it could not only look better but significantly cut down on glare, is this a correct assumption? Using a darker shade to offset the glare and even hide a lot of the grit and dirt that can make your deck look dirty seems a win-win... I have a feeling since 95% of the boats I see are white there must be a good reason beyond sun and heat reflection properties.

Faster just made a point to my answer while I was writing this reply by speaking of the extreme heat a dark color like gray can absorb on a boats deck, but that would not apply to lighter color shades like the sand colors radio has listed would it?

You do know that you can tint the white non-skid paint to some degree and get colors that aren't stock. You can also mix a color and white to get a lighter shade of a given color...

All white can be tough in terms of glare. Using light blue on the non-skid with white trim around it might look really nice.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Do the walkways in Beige outlined with the white. But lighten the beige to a lighter hue.

The boat I just bought has beige nonskid with white "skid". I think it looks really good. But then, my hull isn't blue...

Radioguy,
Where do you sail? If that's bamboo in the background of the photo, it's likely somewhere hot. Even slight tinting from white will add to the heat on your deck, which eventually ends up below. I have white deck and white non-skid. Sunglasses can help counter any glare from the white deck (IMO, a minor problem), but only boat awnings or AC will help you deal with a hot boat interior. The disadvantage of white decks is they show the dirt.....but that's what the mate is for!

Tint only the least amount possible - you will see the difference. If you want a retro look having the noskid in very, very pale blue would be good/
