stripping deck paint--painful!

Eric, did you prime before applying deck paint, or just slapped it on after sanding? In thinking just paint a couple coats and be happy with that, but just thot I'd ask to be sure.

Really......that's interesting. Did you just mix some sort of additive for the nonskid? Now you've got me excited! What did you use for topsides?

Thanks thumbs! I've been using your thread concerning your boat refit since I'm doing the same myself. Our boats differ a little tho.....I think yours is a mark II, and has a retractable keel,...

Hi joe!
The non skid (or any other part of the deck for that matter) wouldn't be an issue except that the previous owner covered the entire deck with acrylic paint. Trying to figure out a way to...

So I tried sanding some of the nonskid in an inconspicuous spot, just to see what it would look like gone. I've exposed some of the fiberglass under the gel coat. Will the primer be enough to cover...

Hm...never even considered sanding the nonskid right off. That's not a bad idea, but should I mark out the areas so I can properly apply non skid paint afterwards in the right spots? Or will it be...

Asdf38,
I certainly agree with you. The only problem is the guys I bought the boat from used water based acrylic to paint the deck and cockpit, and it looks terrible! I'm doing myself and whoever...

Isn't acetone ok for use on fiberglass? Casey recommends it for degreasing and whatnot before painting.

Re: Too much sanding? Not enough?

Re: First Boat ..

I'd have my boat in some bigger water if I was closer to a bigger lake....haha! The nice thing about boats smaller than 25 feet is that they usually sleep 3-4 people, have a stove/kitchenette of...

Too much sanding? Not enough?

Based on all your comments guys I think I might be leaning towards 1 part. The more I think about it the more it makes sense. Maybe my standards are too high! Lol! And I did switch to 100 grit...

Or should I just stick with one part paint, since the boat history is foggy.

The original paint on the boat is an unknown, but the paint applied afterwards is a plastic enamel melamine. I've been using a 1/4 palm sander with 150 grit, and I've been able to remove the gloss...
