None slip deck paint

Just looking at the deck of my (recently purchased) searider 5.4 which has been covered with some sort of none slip gray paint, It is peeling off and looks very poor. My question is what can I use to get it off, back to the original orange and if original not good what can i paint it with? Any suggestions would be much appreciated

if it's flaking off you'll have to sand it back, you could do it with gell coat with grit mixed into it, which is the proper way, you'll need a bit of practice before you start, pm me if you fancy going this route and i'll tell you how it's done

i'll post this on here as more than one person has ask, job goes like:- sand down deck, clean with acetone, tape up area to be coated
Materials:- gell coat (any colour) wax additive (stops it feeling sticky when dry) catalyst, and birdcage sand ( get kiln dried sand from pet shop with crushed oyster shell in it)
Mix:- gell with wax in big bucket, add sand (little at a time, try it on a board to see if you've got enough)
Use:- pour into smaller containers and add catalyst and apply with small roller or bush(keep stirring when using) once you start dont stop
Pull off tape, job done
practise on a board first to get and even coat, if you wanted to coat it twice you leave the wax out of the first coat (stays sticky) and then add the wax to the second coat but leave out the sand (the finish is less grippy)

Good advice from Biff there. You can buy the stuff already made up (flocoat (gelcoat with wax already added) and grit) which makes life easier:

bird cage sand is only a couple of quid and if you only mix what you need you can use the gell without the sand for repairs, if you mix it like i posted the floor will be the colour of the gell and not like tim's (just to clarify) unless that colour was intentional tim

Grey gel = grey floor. I wanted it grey
