A first class job would use a 2 part linear polyurethane, such as awlgrip, rolled on, with a sand type additive sprinkled on, or sprayed on, and then locked in with more paint, perhaps with flattening agent.

There are some good single part paints too. Epifanes and interlux both make some. They already have non skid mixed into the paint. They can be rolled on easily and quite uniformally. They won't have the durability of the 2 part paints. This would be an inferior finish compared to awlgrip. But is all in what you want. I've got single part on my little boat, and it's great. But I know it won't get serious wear and tear.

Is it for the cockpit sole or for the top of gunnel across the transom? The gunnel portion across the back of the transom is what I call the stern deck, just want to know which part of the boat your referring to.

I would grind and re-gelcoat it.

If you want to use paint I like the Interlux Interdeck. Easy to apply,nonskid already in the paint and great wear resistance.

Old thread but recently discussed topic-

Have you used this stuff Plowin or anyone? I have it and wonder if I should be doing more. Dry time is like 4 days too. Just recreational use.

Yes I have used it on my BHM and I liked it very much. If I were to ever paint over my gelcoat I would'nt hesitate to use it again.

Has anyone tried Kiwigrip? Looks interesting, seen it in the local stores but have yet to hear first hand from anyone who has tried it.

How many coats did it take to cover for the first time around?

Thx
