Looking to refinish the deck non-skid. The deck is aluminum with an existing, extremely hard non-skid already in place, dont know what brand. I need something that is very tough that can be brushed or rolled over the prepared substrate. Any recommendations?

I used Interlux Interdeck Topside Paint over my fiberglassed non skid. It worked great. Lasted two seasons of recreation use. I brushed it on so it would get down between the existing non skid. My only complaint would be that it could be more aggressive but then again I have never slipped.

I use durabek and love the stuff. Just use a blue pour-is roller and walla. Easy to apply and holds up great. My decks in the fall see alot of anchors and chain, along with crab legs getting stepped on. I get about 5 pretty seasons out of it.

I used Durabak inside my wheelhouse on the floor and hate it. Holds dirt like a mofo and extremely hard to clean. Will be stripping and gel coating when I get a chance.

I like the tried and true, 2 coats of gel coat no wax followed by gel coat with with and cabosil mixed in. Thats whats on my deck now and survived its first season with 4 1/2 ton vats full of ice dragged across and a 4x4x8' coffin box full sitting on it.

I second the thickened gelcoat with cabosil method. i apply with a wire textured 8'' roller. thicker you make the gecoat the rougher the texture.

I applied tuff coat in 2001 on the aluminum fish hold covers that make up 80% of my deck it is still holding up pretty well . I would use it again if needed

I want it gone I hate it. It was dirty a week after I put it down. Gel coat is much easier to clean and holds up way better. Doesnt grab dirt nearly as much either
