What paint to use when re-painting Rib.

Well this is how my boat looks like now, getting new tubes



And I would like to re-paint the top side, the previous owner repainted it but not so good since there are parts comming off. So I will have to sand the complete top very good and then get some good paint on there.

So can somebody help me on what paint to get ?
I saw interntional brightside PU paint, danboline or interdeck ( it contains a fine aggregate) ?
Would this be good ?


Thanks,
Stef

International Interdeck has a great texture for grip, not to harsh, but just right but it is a little slow at drying(about 3 to 4 days, more if using brightside which is a gloss paint, not to be used for deck, but will colour match with interdeck for console. ).

The key to doing this well is prep work, ie decrease, remove flakes, wire brush or sand if you already have smooth surface on deck and sand console to key it. Also several coats, but don't leave the repainting to long between coats(24hrs or less). Be warned though, Brightside great once it has hardened, but it took nearly 3 to 4 weeks for it to fully set.

I did get another tip from a boat designer (not ribs), he said use a standard polyurthene paint from something like B&Q or any good DIY superstore, and where you need a ruff surface for grip on deck, sprinkle sugar on the freshly painted surface and once set brush down with warm soapy water to remove sugar, leaving a pitted surface. I have not tried it, but it beats paying marine prices for the same/simliar product.

Regards

I’ve used this for other applications great stuff and you can brush or roller it on very hard wearing and soft to your feet.

No I went with a company located in Belgium who has a good name and gives me 5 year waranty, and is close by.
I have seen their work and was impressed, they also make their own line of Rib's. So I think I will be safe for the tubes.
