So I've got a new project I'm working on and I'm trying to save some time and sanity by keeping my grinding to a minimum. The existing deck has got some flex in it, and I was looking to lay a few layers of cloth over it to stiffen it up. My question is, do I need to COMPLETELY remove the existing gel coat/paint (not sure which one) before I lay up the new glass? I was also considering covering the existing deck with 1/4" plywood encapsulated in epoxy (for both stiffness and looks). If I just use epoxy adhesive over the existing gel/paint to bond the plywood to it, will it stick, or do I still need to grind the deck first? Thanks in advance.
