      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Order for polishing chalked deck gelcoat and redoing non skid

Recommended Posts

Which should I do first in giving the deck redo...

 

Cut and polish the gelcoat areas, then mask and redo the nonskid areas in 2 pack.

 

Or, redo the non skid areas, then cut and polish the gelcoat?

 

Or, does it really not matter and I just need to take care either way?

Do the polishing first otherwise you end up with polish stains on the non-skid. Don't wax before the non-skid and be sure to THOROUGHLY clean the non skid areas before applying finish - some polish residues do not react well with fresh paint.

Excellent - what I had tentatively started! Didn't want to have the edges of the buffing pad destroy itself on new non-skid either!

 

Thanks.

Hey Rohan. There is this neat KiwiGrip nonskid paint- It goes on like thick white latex paint, then you run a rough roller over it. Keeps my feet on my A-cat hull nicely and is not rough on skin. I am very happy with it, and did not use that much of the $45 quart.
