Re: Non-skid worn down to fiberglass

I would prime with a high build, fair it, prime with high build again, then a epoxy prime with silica sand broadcasted ( heavy ) over the epoxy primer; once that has gone off, remove excess silica, at that point you'll have a nice even non skid. Now you apply your finish ( at least 2 coats ) of whatever finish color you want

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
