I wouldn't even consider trying to create a nonskid pattern. Go with Fasters idea of the teak & holly ply top surface - it will basically eliminate the nasty fairing job that paint will require and your boat will thank you.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
