Awlgrip is the best assuming the deck is f/glass. However be prepared for a lot of prep. work to do it properly. I decided against it and will stratigicaly fix some non-slip pads to cover the worst spots.

deck is in fairly good condition so maybe just a light sand to get rid of any loose paint and then paint on the new stuff..?

Ok, the deck is already painted. Yes get rid of the loose stuff and feather any edges. Your choice of paint is somewhat dependant on the type of paint already on there. All paints do not adhere well to all paints. Do some research on this, you probably will need to use a primer for a good job. If you already have loose paint you may want to think about stripping it all off.

what about using ordinary deck paint (international) or something similar?

Probably OK, but check out the prep. priming requirements first.

Their non slip finish looks good. International products are very good. You should use the primer as recommended.
I would still suggest you strip off the old paint if it is already flaking otherwise you could be doing it again in a year.

re: paint

I wanted to contribute this to those deck painters out there, I went to West Marine and bought a house brand deck paint they offered that you could thin with water, believe it or not it has held up pretty well and I did very little prep beforehand because I was in a hurry to get the boat done (first year) and just thought it would just wear off pretty quickly, that has not been the case. Now I was painting bare somewhat oxidized aluminum but as I say this deck paint has held up well, even in traffic areas. I am more than a little surprised because I really did not do much prep and was thinking... thin with water? How good can that be? Actually, pretty good... The guy that worked in the store recommended it and he was right. Only downside is it is a little porous and holds dirt somewhat but hey, grey is grey.

I am going to say my personal preference is for non slip mat. I glued down full treadmaster on my last boat and after 4 years it looked as good as new despite some rough handling from dive cylinders.
I intend to fit it again on the new hull although I may use the new lighter pattern. It will cost around 120 but is well worth it for longevity and comfort, no more skinned knees on sanded decks or bare worn patches!

You could go crazy like me and re flowcoat it with some non slip carborandum additive. LOTS of prep required but an ultra hard wearing, professional looking job at the end of it!

I'm going on Amazon in a mo to find a beginners guide to fibreglassing book
