I think that once you have sanded the blue off you will find you have prepped the surface for paint
. You are not likely to be happy with polished, old gel coat.
Will you be replacing the teak deck
? If you remove it be sure to fill the holes AND apply a fiberglass
scrim over the entire surface or the filled holes will crack and leak into the core
We have done Awl Grip on our 1984 Camper Nicholson58 twice in 12 years. It’s difficult to avoid dings and scrapes if you use a marina especially with our large boat
. As a result, second application. The new Awl Grip formula is repairable. The finish is as good as any new boat
. Very glossy and hard. It can be applied by a skilled boat owner but I always hire an artist to do art work
. Our last job was done by Raul in Trinidad for $4000 US not including materials. He is exceptionally good.
was also done in Trinidad but by Perfect Finish, also Awl Grip with non-skid.
Our boat looks new.
