Steve shared this with me. This gives you everything you need to know.

I agree, magnificent decks!!
Steve, do you mind sharing what paint you picked (either the brand or color #) for both the brown and the white?
Super good looking job!

We painted the decks on “Aloha” SM72 a little over 4 years ago. In our case, the cracks in the gel coat had allowed a few chunks of of the tan gel coat to chip off. We ended up grinding off all of tan gel coat prior to painting. Beneath the tan gel coat
is another layer of white gel coat which was in good condition. Moral of the story is that you do not have to worry about water intrusion into the core, and what ever fix you choose will be for cosmetic purposes.
