Anti-Slip Deck Paint

Has anyone had any experience of this, preferably with regard to painting a boat deck?

Coo-Var 'Suregrip' Antislip Coating (Ref. G/139) | Floor, Sport & Line Marking Paint | Coo-var Paints

Also, does anyone have any recommendations for something equivalent, preferably available in black?

I Just used kiwigrip. I love it. It's very forgiving, covered small inperfections too. I wanted to use gelcoat with anti slip. Ecs sell a really good but aggressive non slip topcoat gelcoat. Kiwigrip is chucked on the deck and then s roller used to create the antislip. I tried it, and the stick roller was a little too rough so I found a smoother one at b and q.

I've also used kiwi grip, found it held the dirt a bit but otherwise does exactly as stated. Gave the deck a second coat just before selling it so it looked like new again.

I was keen to use seadeck but was a little to expensive, another popular product over here is everroll® Rubber Flooring for Marine - Regupol Australia

Another vote for kiwigrip. Used it on my 7m. You can adjust the grip with the roller and timing. Let it dry a bit and roll hard to get super sharp spikes. Variations of above to get the desired texture.
