Re: Easiest way to repaint the deck?
I saw a video about applying the non-skid and they pretty much said the same thing. It dries very fast, and you need to remove the tape immediately or you'll end up peeling off the finish you just applied. I also found some good information about using a new, silver tape that doesn't leave a residue and seals very well.
Hopefully, I'll be able to begin removing the deck hardware next Thursday, while it's still relatively cold up here in Maryland. I figured on three days of prep, then the fun begins.
I repeat my advice - check out the Sikkens stuff - NONE of those problems with application or the negatives with the finished surface and it provides as much grip as anything I've ever walked on. Those very coarse surfaces must be hard on sails & lines as well.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
