Subject: Gelcote-like paint for your decks
In reply to: Bryan 's message, "What type of paint/poly/epoxy? for deck" on - Wednesday - 05/ 9/07 - 2:47am

Bryan,

I don't know what you mean by "gelcoat-like" paints, but the last thing you need on your decks, is anything that will create an ice skating ring environment.

There are "non-skid paints" made specifically for decks (Look at the West Marine catalog).

You can also use any hard polyurethene paint with a sprinkle of "VERY FINE" sand on top of the freshly painted first coat (before the paint starts drying) and then (a day later) apply one more coat of paint on top of it.

Best,
Bill

I used the polyurethane and sand on Hibou's cabin top (her deck is wood) and that has worked fine. If you do slip, though, you're gonna leave some skin behind.
