First, all the tan gel coat is sanded of by several workers over a period of a week. After some prep work, the boat is masked, and decks sprayed with a white primer. More finish prep work is done to the primed decks, and then decks are sprayed with 3 coats of Awlgrip egg shell white color. All the grooves are now masked with a fine line tape. Decks are now sprayed with 3 coats of Awlgrip castle tan color mixed with fine Awlgrip grit. The mixed in grit gives you a better non skid than the original decks. You now pull the fine line tape, and voila...beautiful new decks. 

This is a very labor intensive process, and requires a yard in some part of the world with lower labor cost to make it cost effective. You also need a fairly talented painting contractor to do the work, and an owner willing to be there to keep everyone honest. It our case, all of that happened in Trinidad in 2016. 

Let me know if you need any other info or pictures of the end result.

On the subject of the deck strips, in order to retain the timber grain effect of the stripes, how was the preparation achieved. Obviously, by sanding the deck would sand away the timber grain effect to a smoother finish.

No, it is a match to waterline color of the Amel 55.

I guess the non-directed question was not meant for me.

Bill,

 

Is the Awlgrip (Desert Sand) a match to the deck color?

 

 

With best regards,

Since you didn't specify who you were asking, I will answer: Awlgrip desert sand is what I used on BeBe 387. It is the color of the 55.

What was the color of Awlgrip that you used on the hull above the waterline?
