I've used StarBrite's non-skid deck cleaner with PTFE and it works quite well. I'm not exactly sure how a product with Teflon in it works to make a deck stickier, but the decks that have been washed with it seem to be more non-skid than the ones that haven't been. Hmm...

West Marine has a pretty good Fiberglass polish with teflon in it that was highly rated by Practical Sailor magazine, but I would hesitate to use it on the deck as it will probably make the deck pretty slippery. YMMV.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
