I'm thinking of painting the deck myself has anyone any taught s on this and best way to go about it....? Which products to use
I've done it but only going the cheap route
I used shermin williams 2 part epoxy
"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.
