I dont know if it would work on a rib/sib but in work the painters add silica sand to floor paint for non slip finish in most industrial areas, but I wouldn't know what paint to use in a sea environment

That's what they do at Ribcraft....and I've yet to see anything with a better grip
I thinks it's just flow coat,or maybe a two pack,with Bird sand applied.
A quick call would soon let you know Big Muzz

Kiwi-grip is pretty cool. It's a latex paint with the consistency of yogurt. You use a special roller that gives it the textured peaks. With a little practice you can make it as rough and aggressive as you want it, or not. I used it on my boat.

Ended up using an International 'Toplac' to do this, which you put sand through for the 'grip' coat.

Its a UV stable enamel and pretty easy to apply, the sides were brushed but the sand stuff needs to be rollered I have two concerns

1: what is (was) the correct ratio of sand to paint
2: How much gets rubbed off during use.

Time will tell but, I fully expect a bit of stuff to come loose, but its going to be left for two weeks to get properly hard and set in any case

flowcoat with a sprinkling of sand or sawdust allowed to go off before applying another sealing coat works well sand is more hard wearing but hard on bare feet if you do any watersports and a bugger to sand off again if you want a change or a complete refresh
the sawdust is kinder to feet and can be sanded later if required
