Re: Hull & Deck Painting

I used interdeck on my non-skid as at 20 months into the refit i was NOT gonna LOSE another season

While it requires some sanding and cleaning it is very easy to use and very forgiving

Any of the better two-part paints would require bad and out removal of all the deck hardware and a massive prep effort as the increase in quality makes the paint VERY FUSSY

You have to plan your goals for the boat as there is a limit to how much money it makes sense to spend on it due the limit of what it can be insured for

For example it was important to me to have good looking topside paint and it got the full epoxy primer and two tone Awlgrip and the huge amount of time and money that job required

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

Hey there everyone, what a great resource.
As of this past week I'm the proud owner of a 1974 Cal 29 that is very much in need of a deck painting. How would you go about prepping a deck that has decent paint in some areas and worn down to bare black in others? Also, any recommendations for the textured, non-skid areas (which actually look halfway decent still)?
Thanks!

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

I had so MUCH BAD paint over gelcoat to deal with i had to use the NOT-SAFE STRIPPER

I brushed on a section and as SOON as it bubbled a bit i scraped and brushed it off and it was very effective as the gelcoat withstands it for a little bit

My deck hardware and teak got removed yesterday.

You could be in luck because you may be able to strip your 1 part paint with chemical stripper. Most auto parts stores can get you paint stripper for use with fiberglass that will remove a 1 part paint without eating the gel coat.

Re: Hull & Deck Painting

A word of warning before using Perfection. I painted my boat (deck and topsides) with Perfection 5 years ago. I also failed to properly prep the surface. I now have some areas where the paint has lifted off. To be specific, when I taped around my handrails before sanding (to avoid sanding the deck paint) a majority of the paint came off with the tape. I used Frog Tape, which holds better than the regular blue stuff. Now since the boat is out of the water to fix the large hole I put in the hull, I decided to repaint the deck.

Unfortunately since this is a paint adhesion problem, I can't just scuff it and repaint it. I have to strip it off. Interlux says no stripper will touch it that won't also eat the gel coat, so I'm told it will have to be sanded off. There is a lot of deck to sand on a 27 foot boat, especially when you have to remove ALL of the Perfection. Way too many nooks and crannies to have to hand sand.

Proper surface prep is key. Make sure you sand the whole deck with 80 grit, especially the smooth areas. The paint seems to have adhered fine to the non-skid areas. I spent a lot of time with Interlux 202 and bronze wool getting the non-skid clean. I didn't spend much time at all prepping the smooth areas. Now I'm paying for it.

I'm calling a blasting company tomorrow to see how much to soda blast it.

Easy Off oven cleaner - if he used sign paint. Spritz it on and wipe the lettering off.
