Completely remove or just the loose bits

At the moment just started on the deck of my boat it's got a sort of grey paint (no anti slip involved) undercoat on it at the moment

This is about 30 mins of work but the deck is quite lumpy so some bits remove quicker than others.



Do just remove it all or just the loose easy bits then key up rest and flowcoat over.

Or is it best to just completely remove all grey paint down to the flowcoat.
I want to flowcoat orange over the top of this as I have lots of holes to fill in deck and I want a nice thick seal over the top of them.

Also I'm going at it at the moment with a random orbit sander with 60 grit is this the best tool for the job or is it best to use a grinder with flap disc.

Thanks Ross....

Ross while you at it go down till all paint has been removed I used a grinder with a flap disc so much easier, just be aware there will be dust everywhere even the dog next door will be orange , then the sander to get it like a babies bum

In an ideal world you want it off as fresh flowcoat will show up the lumps and bump.


Alternatively you could you a non slip flowcoat, its REALLY good and masking dodgy surfaces.

Well a bit further down from where the photo is I found by the looks of it filler and once I sanded this back a bit I had some cracks.
I then stood up and pressed up and down on the crack and it had some movement a lot more than the surrounding deck and couple that with the numerous holes in the rear deck from multiple redesigns of the layout of the boat I'm reevaluating my options on the boat.

As the screw holes to the rear of console have never been sealed after items were removed and I'm thinking even though they seem dry they must have had water in them at some point.

I'm starting to bat ideas around of replacing floor.
