    Default Changing A deck Colour (RIB)??? Flowcoat....

    Afternoon all,

    Anybody got any expereince or hints/tips for changing the colour of a flow-coated deck?

    Specifically, it's an orange rib, that we'd like to turn white or light grey. I know it won't be easy, but how opaque is flowcoat? Will it cover it completely with a few coats?

    Thanks...

    Why not just paint it and add non slip if needed?

    +1, or use ready mixed deck paint. (cheapskates use masonry paint with a bit of sand in it)

    I used this: https://www.premiermarinepaints.co.u...lip-deck-paint and it worked well, the beige pretty much covered a faded blue/green in one coat, though I'd put at least two on.

    If the deck is textured, it will be prone to chipping paint off.

    I suspect that's largely due to the difficulty in preparing a textured surface.

    I used something like this on my boat with moulded "non-slip" and I've got a few chips after 5+ years, but it's generally OK
