The deck areas on our boat are in need of some TLC so I started rubbing down yesterday. I have reached a point where all loose material has been removed from the section I have started.

The previous coating had started to flake and came off in pieces an inch or two across leaving some depressions, whilst the remainder is sound and has good adhesion to whatever is underneath.

Is there a product out there that can be used to fill the depressions back level with the surrounding area to provide a smooth surface to apply non-slip deck paint to?

Thanks for any advice you are able to provide.

I am no expert n these things but I am assuming your boat is fibreglass so you fill with p38 or something like that or epoxy filler which to my mind is the best. As for paint it rather depends what was there before, as I said I am no expert but you cannot put two pack onto ordinary paint but you can do the reverse (I think that is right). Two pack is undoubtedly the best for decks, very hard waring.

P38 would do or if there is a lot to be done U-pol Smooth 7 which is easy to snad down you will need to ensure that the surface is properly degreased and dry.  Two pack is hard wearing but also more brittle so I would go with a single pack non slip deck paint especially if the deck flexes a bit.  If you try searching this site you will in fact find a previous thread in the past 6 months on the same subject.
