No idea about the paint but..

Stuff the left hand grey bit on the end of the hose, ribbed end first. If the other end of the grey bit doesn't fit in the valves then slide one of the black bits on the end of the grey bit you just fitted. Cut the rest off and keep somewhere safe.

Information on the paint can be found here: http://194.128.184.165/pds/yacht/GB_ISO_M_5000300.htm

Sounds like the right stuff to me, "Excellent abrasion resistance and durability". Although it doesn't have any non-slip stuff in it, so it could be slippery unless you’re painting over an existing non-slip surface. You can buy a non-slip additive, its just a little sachet of sand like material - works though.

They do have non-slip deck paint, but not in your colour.

Thanks mate!, least im getting something right this week - I'm going to give the floor a light rub down, as it says on the tin with sandpaper, I think I'll have to wire brush some parts though what with it being that anoyying buddling surface : ) - I'll post progress before and after pics

Use a good degreaser before painting and make sure the temperature is up above 10c of it can go all naff!

Cheers

do you recommend washing down with degreaser before rubbing down or after?

Olly, I think after it, though no doubt Manos will have a reason for doing it beforehand (when is he back). I used a green pan scourer and jif. Lots of jif. Took the nice smooth shiney deck back to dull gel coat.

Tipped the boat up, garden hose and did it three times but the paint really stuck well. The second time I wasn't so methodical and the results showed. I also thinned the first coat with a splash of thinners, (think International recommended 10%)

Are you going to put the grit in the paint ? it will be like an ice skating ring if you spill oil or petrol and there is no grit or rough surface. You might be better off with deck paint.

Cheers for that, sounds like I have right task on my hands now - when the boat was new it cant have been much different slipperyness wise after i paint it can it - im really not sure bout putting grit in the paint, im scared id mess up the mixture, would antislip rubber decking sections be a better plan?

I would stick with the paint and follow Petes recommendations. Pop back down the chandlers and grab a sachet of anti-slip additive. Blakes do one; it costs around £3 per sachet which is enough for 2.5l of paint.

It will definitely be worth it in the end.
