Agreed on this. We painted our entire deck
white in Jotun 2 pack polyurethane
, then I taped off the non-skid sections, painted a different colour Jotun 2 pack, sprinkled on the fine non-skid grit, vacuumed off the excess, then painted two more coats of the 2 pack. Let it dry for a day or two, remove the tape, voila! All done.
Ours is still going strong a few years later, although can be a bit of a PITA to clean as it shreds sponges. Quite grippy in a seaway tho.
