My boat has never had any deck work done and suffers from some fairly sever gelcoat cracking and crazing. I just posed a similar question to the Interlux people. This is their reply: "Sand the gel-coat with 80-grit paper wipe it clean with 202 Solvent. Brush in some Epiglass Epoxy resin on the areas that are crazed and after it cures sand flat. The epoxy in the cracks will stablize the whole area, Scrub the epoxy with soap and water and sand with 160-grit paper. Wipe with 202 and apply two coats of 404/414 Epoxy Primekote and paint with Perfection." Hope some of this is helpful.
