I need to re-surface the deck of my Parker 2320...Any suggestions for what material/paint to use? Is this a DIY task or should I hire a professional? Any recommendations?

Marine plywood coated in west systems epoxy,while epoxy was still wet I sprinkled fine crushed walnut shells,after it cured I wire brushed off by hand any loose shells,then vacuum and coat in a 2 part lp paint of your choice..twice.

Just used Kiwi grip on the cabin floor of my 2320. I really like the way it turned out and will do the rear deck with it next year.

Just a few weeks ago i applied TotalTread from Total Boat on my Parker 1801 and i love it. If you can paint, you can use this. Prep work is key to a good finish. Masking off areas you dont want nonskid on will really make the work pop.

Its $79 a gallon and i used maybe a 1/4 gallon for my 1801 just to give you an idea. oh and that was two light coats. It held up really well in rough seas and never once did we feel any slippage.

Before and after of a section i did.

Hey guys just a reminder that the contest is over in less than a month. If you'd like to enter the contest and get your boat deck coated for me just send me an email and explain why and a picture of your boat. If you have a big boat and just want the cockpit coated that's fine too.

If you don't mind me asking how much does the sea deck cost?

I just had SeaDek do my coaming pads, looks great, while I was in their shop I looked over some of the stuff they did, really great stuff.
For those concerned with cost, they gave me a estimate $1400 to do my rear deck (28 ft boat).

How long will seadeck last ? Looks nice, and does it tear, or gouge?

Where do I get some glass beads.?
Thanks.

That sea deck stuff looks great! I would imagine a job like Billy did would have to run you around 3k to do.

Anyone know if the Kiwigrip is stain resistant? I have a hard time getting blood and dirt stains off of my Parker deck, plus it's worn down...thinking of going with the Kiwi. Any info would be appreciated!

Taken from the company's website - "What is the life expectancy?"
"Five to seven years. Longer if the boat is stored inside or if the SeaDek is under a cover"

I can handle repainting every 5-7 years for $ but to rip out this stuff after 7? years for $$$ then replace it for $$$. I would have a hard time justifying the expense for something pretty to walk on.
