RE: Painting Yout Trawler the Inexpensive Way

"I would never paint over a gel-coat patterned non-skid with out sanding it smooth first."

Surface prep, getting it ready to accept paint , can be done with hot water ,TSP and scrubbing .

If you live in a PC occupied Zone and cant find TSP, its in most automatic dish washing powder.

RE: Painting Yout Trawler the Inexpensive Way

I have tried, really tried, I have prepped and prepped, sourced out the best brushes, rollers, all to no avail. Some people just can't paint. Well not very well anyway. Guilty as charged.
