    This specification covers non-skid coating systems for application

    Hello everybody!

    Does the sentence "This specification covers non-skid coating systems for application to weather decks" mean "This specification discusses/talks about/includes non-skid coating systems thatwhich are to be applied to weather decks"?

    I think so.

    What is your opinion?

    Your reply would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    In fact, delete "that which are."

    There's no such thing as a weather deck. There are all-weather decks weathered decks.

    Yes there is. It's a nautical term.
