yeah, I should have mentioned that we removed some treadmaster from the cockpit sole of our current boat, and applied the stuff that Jody mentioned... it has stood up well and is indeed an excellent non skid surface.

Waaaaay less expensive than any of the two parts, very thick, rolls out well (probably doesn't cover a lot of area/can)... but at $40 per quart it's definitely an option.
