Default Painting over OB deck stain

Deck is covered and stained with oil based Superdeck semi solid. SW said I can prime it with an oil based wood primer (I was thinking Cover Stain) and topcoat with porch and floor enamel but the data sheet says not to apply the primer to decks. I'd considered two coats of oil based All Surface Enamel satin but the dry time is just too long. The deck has almost zero air flow or sunlight and it's extremely humid here in the deep south. Suggestions?

I donít think Coverstain is a good idea. If it was me I would look into an oil modified stain like Flood or Zar after prepping the surface well to give it some profile.

So give it a good scuff, clean it up, and stain with a quality 100% acrylic solid stain? My two main concerns are adhesion to the oil based stain and dry time. I've noticed that deck stains, water or oil based, have trouble drying over previously coated substrates because they can't penetrate the grain.

Sherwin has a specified clear coat primer for their deck and dock if you want to give it a try.
