WOW they make it look sooo easy. question is where too get the old xhatch patterrn, I was thinking I could make my own from a good portion of deck
Could I just wax the section smear some epoxy and use this (after it dries) for my mold.

Try Interluck Interdeck. Is same as above descriptions but has the silica added already. If not too thick you will still see cross hatch pattern. You will need two coats though for colour consistency

Unfortunatly it is the pattern crosshatch stuff, I guess I could paint right over it and use the sand trick !
I kinda like the look of the crosshatch pattern though, I always wondered how they did that , is it a layed down cloth or maybe its stamped it brfore the gel cote drys
I was thinking of a spray paint to preserve that xhatch look.

|poopdeckpappy||I think I'm going to try Kiwi grip this time, last boat I used Interlux with a NS additive, came out nice, but I want to try something different this time|

|CaptainForce||I use an Interlux topsides paint brushed on with a added mix of coarse quartz sand. This works well for me, but I wasn't sure by your post if you had a patterned gell coat non-skid which would present a different problem.|

Painting non skid gelcoat on topsides
Hi there, I have the non skid gelcoat on the deck of my Crown 23, its looking kind of shaby and has some discolored spots where some hardware was mounted. I tried cleaning the discolored areas to no avail. What kind ofaint do u guys recomend and what about the prep.
