I've done it but only going the cheap route.

I used shermin williams 2 part epoxy floor paint "tile clad"($100 for 2 gallons/very tough). This was my "base layer". Not advertised as marine grade but it says so right on the can :-)

On top of this I used rustoleum restore 10x deck paint(bought at home depot for cheap). It has a rubbery texture that feels nice on your feet(like kiwigrip).

I taped off a grid using painters tape(easier cleaning/draining) and put on 1 thick coat(thicker the better based on instructions). I let it cure for a week before using the boat(forgot how long they said but this was longer).

Sold the boat but it held for 4 years and still looked great.

I have to do things a bit different on this forum. Unable to edit after a certain period.

Anyway.

The shermin williams stuff is called tile clad and although not advertised as marine grade it says so right on the can.


The non skid paint was rustoleum 10x sold at home depot for cheap(I bought 4 gallons and didn't use 1/3. Great stuff.
