Deck paint

I repainted my decks last year with Interlux Interdeck. Initially the job was very nice and white but after only afew weeks a lot of hard to clean stains appeared. Now after one season it looks aweful. Did any of you have a similar experience with that paint? Any good alternative?

You might check Kiwigrip. However, be aware I have only seen it on two boats swimgrids so far and only one or a bit yrs old. Not long enough to comment on longetivity.

Over 10 years ago my neighbor brought me some deck paint. He worked for Parker Paint and I used it in my entryway in back of the house. I was amazed how much abrasion that paint took. It was not glossy and ever since then I've wondered how it would work on a boat. Anybody done anything like that?

Fotoman, you should contact Interlux and talk to them. They may have suggestions on how to clean the stains or they may give you more paint. At any rate you should let them know you are unhappy.

Fotoman, I just recently did the same, and with Interdeck, Squall Blue, (which I suspect is just Toplac or similar with the grippy stuff added), and it came up well. I have used it every 3-4 yrs, and it cleans quite well with detergent and brush, however, due to the 'grippy' end finish, stains do stick around more than they would on a smooth surface, as do our feet, which is why we use it. I suspect that it's just that white is a colour any stain will show up against rather more than a darker colour. Have you thought of painting it in say blue, or grey, (like Marks' Coot), but with a strip of white still along & around the outer and inner boundaries and other fittings in the deck, like this...

For a real no skid deck, Treadmaster , has been #1 world wide for 3 decades.

Loads more co$t than a pail of paint tho.

S, You might take a look at so called "truck bed" liner material.
It is used on cruise ships around the pool areas and such, wild animal cages in zoos, floors in warehouses with fork lifts driving over it.
Did my boat in 99 and it is jsut fine today.

When I owned my 44' Atlantic trawler, I used the Interdeck white and found that it was a bear to keep clean. Living under the flight path to JFK was not a help. However, I used the beige on Tortuga and it stays very clean with minimal use of boat soap and a soft bristle deck brush. Three years now since painting and will refresh it this year.

Sure would like to see more pics of your boat Paul. It looks like the boat I wish Willy was but now I'm going to be down south where moorage is $275 a month. The extra length would cost me so I'm more happy w Willy than in the past. But your Clipper looks really good to me.

I have been using the same paint, Grey, for years. I've never had any problems like you have had. I would suggest you might consider using any color but white; it will make any staining less noticeable.

The darker the color , the harder it is on bare feet.

Ours is BLACK, but with shards of flint as no skid , bare feet are a no ,no.

I just painted our salon deck and engine hatch covers. I found out that we used the same paint for wife Chris's craft room. The craft room has held up well for 6 years and only one coat. The paint is acrylic latex. I know almost everybody here has carpet but I do'nt like carpet and have painted plywood floors. On the outside decks as long as one painted w the same color I'll bet the latex would give good service and it's so easy to re coat.

I see you there Marine trader try'in to suck us into your sales trap. Wish someone would eliminate you as you never stop try'in to sell your stuff. We even have a special thread for selling stuff. Like what does your used boat lot have to do w deck paint???

I used acrylic deck paint on my Tollycraft which had the original turquoise that burned the feet on a hot summer day. It is quite durable, it cleans well, and if I want, I can touch it up and it blends in.
I also used some anti skid material which I believe was called "shark skin" or something like that off the shelf.
I used some leftover easypoxy as the primer coat. I did it over a year ago and it looks great.

Fotoman, Awlgrip with a matting agent and non-skid is a 10 year+ finish on the deck, at least in the NW. You have to be able to deal with the fumes, but with a decent respirator it is an easy product to apply, especially on a deck.

A very good alternative is System Three Paints WR-LPU waterborne 2 part polyurethane. I used this on one area and it is still bright after 5 years and seems to hold up really well. The primer is also water soluble and in general, this system is extremely easy to apply. Other than the higher cost of the product, I really don't know why anyone would use an alkyd paint rather than this.
