I did a search on this but didn't find anything right away. I inherited an AB aluminum
dink (RIB) and as is pretty typical for these the white paint
on the floor has cracked and is flaking off so only the aluminum
is showing. Looks like hell and it can get slippery in these. So I want to dress it up and put a non-skid coating on it. The hull
outside seems good still.
Any advice on
a) getting off the paint
that has not yet cracked and flaking (i.e. the transom and up to the tubes inside
b) prepping the aluminum for repainting - sanding
, primer, etc.
c) type of paint/non-skid
Since knees can take a beating in dinks I am wondering if Kiwigrip non-skid paint would be good. It looks easy to apply and is relatively kind to skin and is good non-skid. Thoughts and ideas?
