I used protectakote UVR on mine, nice and easy to apply and does the job well. Smells lovely when your applying it too.
DM recommended Teamac non slip deck paint to me as well, have a look on their site and ask for a brochure, its got everything in you need to know.

It's expensive, but I rate Treadmaster - not only very grippy, but really protects your floor from all those knocks and dings from anchors and the like.

I've just redone my floor with Teamac-it's quite good, but take heed of the fully hardening time

A budget solution could be to mix sand in the resin/paint. I have used it quite a lot in dinghy sailboat racing and has loads of grip: it does havoc with any foul weather gear, but so does treadmaster, which is indeed very good.
Maybe on Salt water you will have less difficulties, but i found treadmaster after a couple of years relatively difficult to clean in a fresh water environment (with very persistent green bits appearing on it)

Yes

I had black soles on my feet after walking on it after 3 days.

I think I prefer Teamac to the 'sand in paint' method. It was only 23 quid including delivery to get enough to do my boat twice over.
You need 2 coats of teamac- but it doesn't look quite right until the 2nd coat. I think the 'sand in paint' method would be harder to get the amount of aggregate right without the paint getting thin. Mine was originally done like that and it was constantly losing a small amount of sand.

Another vote for treadmaster. Applied properly it looks good and lasts for years.

There was 11 year old grey treadmaster on the tubes of my old rib. They were holding up quite well. They did attract dirt but cleaned up nicely with TFR or tube cleaner and a quick scrub with a floor brush.
