Masking around nonskid

The Sterling LP on the house and decks is ten years old. I painted it myself, and have been delighted with the way it held up. It is time for a fresh coat or two.

The problem is how to paint around the nonskid. There is Treadmaster (diamond pattern) on the side decks, and a mix of Sterling and colloidal silica texturized on the cabin top. Both non skid areas are in great shape, so I want to paint around them.

Any ideas on how to mask the nonskid?

Rhino board (contractors floor protectant) and 3M green masking tape.

BTW, Sterling is no more.
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,

Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

Re: Masking around nonskid

on small projects, I used rubber cement to mask off areas from paint. seems to work fine.
