I agree that Ranger 28's do have a nice non-skid pattern... its just that this boat has been painted and re-non-skidded before, and IMO it looks like s---. The non-skid looks like stuco (not a good look for a boat). This is the reason I want to start over.
You said there is a non skid that you just stick down? Like a sticker?
The way my fellow sailor is doing his is, he sanded the whole thing down and then is going to have it primered (he says this will show the imperfections so as to fix them before the final paint)
Then he will paint on the non-skid areas (taped off of course) and then paint the entire deck.
Well I dont thing you could paint the entire deck if you were to do contrasting colors. And as far as the heat thing goes...I would welcome a little extra deck heat as I am up on Lake Superior. So it doesnt get too entirely hot. I was thinking a light tan or light grey.
