    I think your posts absolutely excellent and would love to hear how you would tackle an old GRP cruiser with at least 4 coats of poorly laid non slip paint. I am finding it an absolute nightmare.
    Many thanks

    1. Hi, John

      Ugh…that does sound like a bad dream.

      My first thought would be to grind/sand all the old non-skid paint off down to the gelcoat and then lay down a premium, modern non-skid material. Besides paint, there’s some interesting textured sheet materials too, which would be easier to install.

      It’ll be a big job but anything less probably won’t hold up long.

      Let us know how it turns out,

    I’m looking for the best location to install smoke/co alarm and propane detector on my C22 (1985). Any thoughts on these locations?

    1. Hello, David

      I haven’t installed one in a sailboat but assuming you expect to use propane appliances with small, disposable bottles inside the cabin, my best guess would be close to the sleeping berths but safe from moisture, getting bumped, etc. That said, I think all gas appliance manufacturers warn against using their products unattended. I recommend you consult more knowledgeable sources like the US Coast Guard to be on the safe side.
