Use flocoat and mix in some dry sand, apply it with a brush, then roll it out. A 5 mtr floor will only use about 4kg.

Apply a liberal coat of suitable paint and then cover evenly with budgie sand until the paint stops absorbing the sand, when the paint has dried brush off the excess sand. Apply a final coat of paint to seal any loose sand and give an even colour.

Budgie sand from pet shops is very fine dried sand for budgie cages, also relatively cheap.

Rubberised garage floor paint works well if you can get the right colour.
This works quite well-we made a full new non-slip cockpit floor for a 17" hardboat like it. You do need more sand than you think though so buy plenty.

Never tried this myself,
apply the resin, flocoat etc. Then sprinkle with sugar, when resin sets, wash sugar off.

Chandlers sell a product that you mix in the International paints. Worked a treat for my Searider last year. You only need one of their medium sized tins of paint and one packet of the non slip stuff. Probably less than £20.
