Repainting Deck

I am considering using Tuff-Coat (Medium texture deck coating) to repaint an entire deck and cockpit of an older sailboat. Has anyone done this and what are the advantages/disadvantages? Thanks.

Re: Repainting Deck

If it has a lot of texture, seems like it would be difficult to keep clean.

I re-did my deck last summer with Pettit EZ Poxy, semi-gloss white. It was very easy to work with, and the results were "acceptable." A skilled and experienced painter would probably have a smoother finish, but I'm happy with it, considering my budget and amount of free time.

I haven't done the non-skid areas yet but plan to use the same paint with Pettit's flattening agent added.

Re: Repainting Deck

Just happened to watch BoatWorks YouTube channel last night, who claimed Alexseal and rubber sand is the best non-skid he's ever seen. You might want to check it out.

Like most projects, I think the outcome is 90% dependent on the preparation. It must be smooth and level or it will show.
