Exclamation Boat Builders, How do you add Non Skid to a deck?

I want to sand down the cockpit floor and add new anti Skid. How do you do that? I have tried to add salt and sugar on top of the gel coat (used to do that when I fixed the windsurfers) with some success but I am wondering if there is a better way?

Thanks
Jon

You can buy a non skid material embeded in paper. After gel coating put the paper on the wet gel coat and roll over it, than remove. Fiberglass supply houses should sell it and I can get you some if needed. It comes in different designs of non skid.

Cool

I'm going to let this go on for a while before I reveal the real method (used by west coast custom builders)...

You are correct that is how it is done with Imron but I am going the gel coat method on this boat.
