Painting my deck?
 
I have noticed that the new Valiant DR's have a grey deck and I wanted to know what they used - is it paint?

If so, what would be the best paint if i painted my deck in (non-slip) grey?

Option One: buy some very expensive “specially” formulated paint from a chandlers with a non slip additive in it.

Option Two: pop into B&Q get a tin of exterior masonry paint tip in some sand. Job done.:thumbs:

Mate did option one on his boat and it has worn off after one season. He then read about option two, gave it a shot and guess what has lasted with out any ware showing. I honestly think this is the way forward and I am looking to do this on the RIB once I get a deck fitted…

The only thing is it dose like a good bake in the sun to go off fully, so pick your day.

I tried option One years ago, and yes it lasted barely a season.

Or buy proper non-slip deck stuff. You can get a thin flow-coat type stuff which has non slip stuff in it which you paint on and will dry rock hard. Can't remember what its called right now though!

Someone told me about sprinkling sugar over the wet paint then when dry wash it down to desolve the sugar off. Leaves little pits making grip.
