Cleansers and a good stiff brush work really well for non-skid. Comet is not so good for the environment because it has bleach and other chemistry.
Bon Ami works great, won't scratch gelcoat and is 100% natural (made from ash and minerals). It is also really cheap ($1.25) at the grocery store.

Woody wax is designed for non skid surfaces, helps seal, protect, and keep non skid working well, follow the application directions properly

Re: Cleaning non skid deck surface

My Morgan 462 has a unique non-skid with deep pockets that trap dirt. Short of using a power washer, the only way I can get it clean is to use a stainless steel wire brush either manually or on a drill motor. No chemical I have tried will touch it unless I use the wire brush. I keep hoping that if I use the wire brush enough, maybe some of the non-skid will wear off and open up the pockets - so far that hasn't happened.

A high power washer will do the trick quickly, but also it removes get coat in a few small spots. Definitely not a good compromise.
