Default Non slip material to put on swim platform?

I know there was some threads on this but I can't find them. Some people posted links to some non slip for jet ski's I think it was that looked pretty good.
My platform is solid that is molded part of the top deck.
My swim platform is slippery as he-- since painted. Anybody that steps on it when wet just about goes in the drink.
Thanks

You can use Awl Grip fine griptex and spray it through a spray gun tape it off creatively and have at it.

i used hydro turf on mine. i used to race jetskis and knew the product would work well. everyone who see's it really likes it. you can buy it from them in a sheet. easy to install with a good contact cement... mark

Hydroturf was the stuff I saw
What did you use to attach it/contact cement?
How are the edges once cut, Will it come apart there?
Thanks

Put a good design together and take it to the water jet guy. Bet that would look really nice.

You can also find non-slip wax at W Marine specifically designed for places you walk around. Used on sail boats a lot and it works pretty good without having to add, stick, or paint anything on.
