Stir thoroughly before use. The non-skid agent in this product will float to the surface in the container and must be
stirred thoroughly. May be applied by brush or roller. For brush or roller application, apply without thinning, although
in hot weather, 5 to 10% of Pettit 120 Thinner may be added to maintain a wet edge. For best results on large,
smooth surfaces roll out using a short nap or foam roller followed immediately by leveling off with the tip of a brush.
Do not apply on extremely humid days (90% RH or above) or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in late afternoon
when working outdoors as the wet film may be adversely affected by dew. When working in cooler temperatures, be
sure the air and surface temperatures will remain at or above 50 degrees for at least eight hours after application.
Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow
recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate
coating performance. Surface must be free of dirt, loose paint, rust, oil, grease, wax, soap and any other foreign
As I read the description and application instructions, I found no mention of having to use a primer with EZ Decks. Is that really the case? It seems that somewhere I may have read that primer isn't required. Is it really that EZ?
It depends on what you are putting in on top of. Here is the link to their technical data sheet:https://doc.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/pdfs/Pettit/EZ-Decks.pdf

You would have to contact Pettit on what colorant would work: www.pettitpaint.com - (800) 221-4466Pettit 92 BIO-BLUE is a pre-paint cleaner for surface preparation.

I added 1/2 tube of brown coloring agent to match my hull. Almost a full season of heavy use and all is well. Hope this helps.
How does this product stand up to a Polyester Gelcoat based product for wear and dirt repelling?
Gelcoat is much harder and resilient to chemicals, and both will develop microscopic pores over time that dirt can get trapped in, but the gelcoat is a harder surface and will take longer to get to that stage. The paint's advantages are the ease of application with consistent colors, and quick repairing. Both can be scrubbed down and washed with a decent amount of water pressure. Gelcoat will have a better bond to old gelcoat than the paint (if both are applied properly).

i sanded deck but has small cracks in some areas will paint fill small cracks?
This is not an easy answer from my experience. If the cracks are due to aging gel coat and you prepare the surface correctly and use primer under the paint the answer is probably yes. If the cracks are do to damaged fiberglass underneath the gel coat, then the paint will fill the cracks but that will only be temporary, the cracks will soon reflect up through the paint. In general, a few scattered cracks are probably gel coat aging, many cracks in a small area are more likely to be deeper damage. You should consult any fiberglass repair manual. Most have pictures of gel coat cracking patterns and the ideal repair method to use. I painted my deck two years ago and it still looks good. It had minor cracking in the gel coat and have not seen any cracks reappear.
thanks kevin for your answer
It depends on how severe the cracks are but small cracks on my lobster boat were filled in.
Best Paint Ever ... Highly Recommend
We have used Pettit EZ Poxy paints on 2 different boats now and can't say enough good things about them. Easy to paint with. Great coverage.

Great non-skid paint
This is a great, easy to use non-skid paint. I was amazed how easy it was to put on the deck and how well it has held up so far. You do not have to be a professional painter to use this and get professional results. Just follow the directions and you will not have any problems and the end result is great. Excellent non-skid for boats. I would definitely recommend it.
