Just got my first boat
: Coronado 27. There was a bunch of lichen like growth on the deck
which wouldn't come off via scrubbing. We power washed the deck
with good results except, in some cases, the lichen guys took some of the paint
with it. One person said the deck looked like latex so I'm not sure what kind of coat this is.
Question 1 : Is there a good alternative to painting since painting would require a haul out
. Astro-deck like pads I heard about ?
Question 2 : If must paint
, what kind of paint is common for the deck ?
