First job after I'd jizzed all over it, was to Jizz over it again.
.strip it down
Underneath all the grime on the transom is very original and no stress marks at all.
The floor came up very well. It really just needed new Anti Slip coating so sanded the existing off, two thin coats of Interdeck.
In the meantime I had prepared some builders sand, washing it, Sieved it.wash it again ,sand in saucepan on the cooker to completely dry it and then evenly spread it over and left to dry for a few hours in a warm garage.
The top coat was International Industrial Garage floor paint as this would give me the durability and texture that I was looking for and I could find nothing on the market that comes close to this stuff on the marine shelves.
