Paint advice please

I want to repaint my deck before I put my freshly sprayed consoles back on, But i am unsure of which paint to use.
I have in the past used anti slip deck paint from Blakes on my other boats , but it is not Fuel resistant.
I am thinking of using Blakes bilge and locker paint as it says on the tin it is fuel resistant.
Question is would it be suitable for the deck ?

Hi,

I was thinking of painting mine with the rubber crumb type goo. At the moment I have rubber matting which is great for lobbing kit over the decks but is really hard to secure.

Do you spill a lot of petrol on your deck?

I'd use flowcoat with either sand in it or sawdust depending on how agressive you want the anti slip

the way to go is paint on a coat of flowcoat & whilst its still wet sprinkle on either dry sawdust or dry sand then once its gone off give it another coat of flowcoatto seal the particles in it works briliant & is resistant to anything that fiberglass is

you can experiment with different amounts of sand/sawdust & different size grains/wood chippings to give more or less grip

just be aware if you go the sand route its very hard to remove even with a grinder as the sand wrecks the disks & it realy is abraisif on bare feet

practice on some scrap ply first

I have never tried this myself, but this was suggested to me years ago:
Apply your resin/flowcoat, then cover with granulated sugar and leave it to set.
Once it is hard enough, wash off the sugar which should leave indentations in the resin where the sugar once was.

I think a trial run should be tried to see if the result is what you want.

Trouble is with most bilge paints is they leave a glossy finish, which is good in the bilges of course making it easier to wipe oil and greese etc, I use International deck paint myself and never had any problems with small amounts of fuel spillage, but it's getting expensive neading 3 tins so might look at alternatives, but wouldn't use bilge for the base paint.

I've just used East Coast Fibre Glass Supplies own pre-pigmented non-slip resin - not too expensive and really good, easy to deal with them too. Good web-site.

I did spill a little a few times on my old rib when i was refilling the fuel tank thats in the console.
The Blakes / Hempel anti slip paint was washed away.

Your right about the gloss finish, I thought i would try some bilge and locker paint today on my old rib deck before i go putting it on my new one .
It went on nice over the old deck paint with no reaction But it is very glossy.

I may take a look at the international deck paint tomorrow and see if its fuel and oil resistant.
