Deck paint nearly done

04 February 2015
The deck painting process is nearly finished. We did it one or two patches at a time, so it's been slow going. We choose light grey industrial single part polyurithane called protectakote UVR. The stuff is fantastic, super grip and tough as nails... I have dropped hammers on it with zero damage.. The hammer even bounced! We have a stair case that leads up to the boat... I used this as a testing ground for the paint. Super high wear for six months and it wa still in great condition. I primed with interprotect.
