Repainting deck

I am moving my jockey console forward and want to smarten things up, is flowcoat the best thing to use to paint the deck again?

It is currently pale grey. To paint a small rib <5m what amount do you think I might need and any tips on getting the best results would be great.

Is there any make better than others? Any well priced on line retailers or would shipping mean buying local would be best?

Cheers for any pointers.

TK

Hello,
I have just done my Avon Rover where the last owner ripped out a console. I used Hempel deck coating pacific blue with 2 coats. 1st coat was straight out of the tin and the second I added their pearl !! granules to add grip. Went on lovely and I was suprised that the grit looked quite tame but is actually perfect.
Its a great colour and covered a multiple of sins. The only panic I had was when after 24 hrs it had not set at all. I called the technical chap at Hempel who was great and confident that if I left it another 1/2 day it would be dry. It was !! so drying times slightly longer than it says on the tin (at 15 deg) but worth it.
All the best, Colin.
