Non-Skid color

How hard is it to just paint some non-skid, or is it better to remove and replace? I may have located a great boat for sale but the non-skid is orange. Top side paint looks great, the owner said it was waxed and buffed in 2010.

Here is a pic of the fugly ugly orange.

The January edition of Good Old Boat has an article on redoing the nonskid and a list of suppliers of non-skid materials. You can of course just paint the existing nonskid to a color you want, but will probably lose some of its non-skid-ability. Also, if that color was painted on you might be able to remove it with one of those soy based paint strippers that will not damage gel coat. If the color is gel coat, then you are prabably stuck with redoing it as described in Good Old Boat or living with it.
Good luck.
If you do replace it, post some pictures etc on how you fared.

As John said, you may lose some of the non-skid texture if you paint over it, but given the work involved in stripping the old, I would most certainly test (paint over) a small area first. The texture loss to you may be negligible.

Sounds good, my concern is that a sealer has been used and I won't be able to just apply paint and be done. If that is the case I'll strip it all over winter when it's on the hard.

This is all pre-mature since we have not yet agreed on a price.

Thanks again
