If I can get all the loose paint off I'm going to prime it and paint it with a 1 part from Total Boat . This was a work boat first and I think the nonskid was put on then .

Better put that beer in on a tether line PM. Don't want the fish pigs complaining about the too LOL

Any recommendations for nap thickness?

Thanks!

I used cheapo foam rollers as it's designed to be pretty thin...not aggressive...it works though unless your soles are slick and the deck is wet.

Good news is it is bare feet friendly.

Depending on the solvents, foam will dissolve. As noted above I have Awlgrip, but what looks like a very durable alternative is described here: Trawler Forum - View Single Post - System Three LPU water based long term product review

I don't know whether System Three has a matting agent, but I would assume so (nice for decks), and crushed walnuts word great for non skid (had them hold up fine for 20 years on our sailboat). If you want application tips on the System Three, let me know. It will outlast the single part Interdeck by years. I believe that to be true because I used Interdeck on that sailboat's cabin top and re-coated every three years to keep it looking decent.

We just painted our foredeck and side decks w Brightside. We have a FG deck that is textured and have never had a traction problem.

However as the paint name implies it's glossy. The Brightside may in time prove to be too "bright" and then we'll probably overcoat it w Interdeck. We looked into gloss reducers after the first coat but decided not to.

I'm sure glad Chris wanted to two tone the larger anti-skid areas w the borders. We've got a light brown (tan) on the textured larger areas and dark green for the stripes and borders. I really like the look.

I use domestic floor paint in the salon.

My thoughts on some boat areas...paint it as simple as you can...because for all kinds of reasons the surface gets discolored, marred, chipped, etc...and taping off a couple areas any nice day, pop open a can, roll on another coat in an hour or less....bingo...done.

That to me beats the butt off of worrying about high priced paint and time intensive prep/worry.

I've done it both ways and like my system..but obviously there are others...

Everything exterior (decks, hull, cabin, etc.) on Sherpa is Awlgrip paint. Amazing stuff and most durable. It has held up very well to intense Florida UV.

I too am ready to re-paint. I presently have baby blue paint on decks. Likely two coats of it. Im considering repainting with a beige. My concern is that some of the old paint is chipping and coming up (by diesel fills on back deck-Probably not prepped properly). This fact predetermines that I need to scrape off paint where I can to get to a good sub-strait. Will either AwlGrip or Interdeck effectively fill in where needed? Will changing to a different color be a concern for possible later chipping?

As far as using inexpensive paint, I enjoy Thomas Jefferson's quote: "There is no economy in using cheap paint".

18 months ago I sanded well applied 2 coats of interlux epoxy primer followed by one coat with a smooth foam roller. I kept the interdeck stirred constantly to keep non skid well distributed. Deck holding up well with lots of traffic. Only had time for one coat as leaving the boat for 3 months in Sint Maarten.

Existing texture nonskid? I'd brush or spray.

Ditto, I don't remember the product, but within the last week he posted a new video on a new non skid product that was very favorable.
