Re-painting 4.8m ribcraft
is there anybody who has had a 4.8m ribcraft and re-painted the deck?? I've had to carry out some minor deck repairs having removed a few things and in turn needed to repaint the deck. But trying to find a paint/coating to match the existing is proving impossible. the deck as it exists can be described as a dark grey colour (i would call it cement [not concrete] grey, complete with a very rough texture, akin to a gritty texture. I tried international paints and Hempel but both offer only light grey colours. I contacted ribcraft who supplied me with a gel coat covering, but this is not a colour match nor has the same same textured finish-the gel coat being smooth, even when rolled on. I am now considering weather I can simply by a tin of white or black non slip flooring paint and add some pigment to colour. So, what I'm wanting to know is does has anybody had a similar experience and have they solved this problem and found a matching paint. bottom line is that I didn't want to have to re-paint the whole deck again, especially since I like the old colour, and with the colours I have found so far no really matching or bettering it. If anyone has ideas or advice I'd be please of the input.
