However, you must scrub the life out of the deck first so green pan cleaning things TFR and elbow grease, 3 complete times.
Next thin slightly the first coat and allow to dry. Top coat just paint on. I think you will need 2 tins since a 750ml tin just does a Viper 5.95 deck, but any left will touch up for next year.
The light grey colour is cool in bare feet, very grippy even with diesel on it (don't ask) and it doesn't fade so any scratches I got from weight belts and diving tanks were just touched in and matched perfectly when dry. Do buy the thinners for it.
I did a proper job the first time. Second boat I didn't clean the deck well enough and the paint started to lift, lesson learnt.
