Non slip deck paint?

My rib currently has square rubber mesh cut to shape forming a non slip deck tread. Its heavy, messy, hard to hose down and sore to walk on with bare feet.

Has anyone used non slip paint on their (painted) GRP deck? My deck is currently painted yellow not sure of the type of paint used but its quite durable and in good condition, just slippy as hell!

Iīve seen lots of non slip paint on ebay including boat specific stuff by international.

Has anyone used this? Is it any good or are there better products out there?

I donīt want anything too agressive thatīll damage / scratch dive kit or scrape skin off mind!

Also many of the international paints are dark colours. My rib is blue / black tubes and with a dark painted floor would show up like a puddle on a grey day...

In an emergency situation this could make it hard to spot??
