non slip epoxy finish

Hi my narwhal rib has a grey non slip / bobbly finish to the deck it is the HD480. I have made an anchor locker from marine ply and want to ideally spray epoxy over it to give it a waterproof non slip type finish that will cover the plygrain and light imperfections. I used Shultz on my car to underseal and this gives a very similar finish and covering ability to what I am after. can anyone recommend a product or method to achieve this in epoxy please?

West System is the usual epoxy of choice for boaty stuff.

Thoughts on spraying epoxy ?

I'd roller it with a non-slip additive added.

But actually I'd probably flow coat this instead although may not be as touch would better macth the boat than epoxy and again can add non-slip additive (or some fine sand)

I'd glass the outside then flowcoat it too.

So just so I am clear on the process, glass fibre with standard epoxy on bare ply followed by flowcoat grey with non slip.
