Humber 6.5 OP deck advice

Hi guys,

I have decided to overhaul the rib over the next week.

I have pulled out all the electrics, and taken off the seats and console, and deck tank.

I now need some advice.

There is an under deck tank, which I want to keep, which has a plywood cover. This was fixed on place with sikkaflex and big screws. I will replace this sheet, and want to make sure I do a good job.
I should seal the underside and edges, but what is the best way? Should I coat it with resin, or add a layer of glass as well? I have read on here about priming wood, but do I need to do that, and if so how?

Also when I have fixed the new piece in, should I keep it as is, or just cover the whole deck with a layer of 450 Csm, and finish off with non slip flowcoat? I will need a small hatch for access to the sender, but that should no be an issue.

On the pics you can see where the seats and console were, and the large rectangular piece is the section I need to replace

I have made the deck insert, and now waiting for the rain to stop before going on with the deck.
I have decided to use a layer of 600 CSM over the whole deck, and insert. I have cut out some hatch holes for the fuel tank sender, and the access for the breather pipes etc.

Next question is do I need to sand down the deck after glossing, before putting on the non skid flowcoat? Or can I just put it straight down after the resin/ glass has gone hard?

We used to add silica in to the flow coat to make it none skid but it's a eye to mix the right amount in and then with a roller put it on then a light sand to knock the tops off. But we used to do that after the moulding was realised from the mould then mask, sand, mask again then whip down with acetone and go for it. Unless anyone has any other recommendations.

That's the stuff I got, east coast non slip flowcoat.

Do I need to sand the resin coat down, after putting on the layer of CSM?

I was going to put down a layer of CSM to seal the deck rather than leave the sikkaflex join showing.

Weather has been holding me up, but the forecast is good for tomorrow!

Personally always run over with 180grit on da. And wash with acetone just before applying,,, always worked for me

Thanks guys, appreciate the advice.

After the deck, I need to do the jockeys and console. Planning on using the da and farleca to cut them back to new (ish!)

Will let you know how I get on.
