Also, a cheap power plane ($20 +/- at HF) works on flattish areas, set the front part of the sole so it sits on the nonskid with the rear part sitting flat on the smooth part of the deck.
in use, DO NOT push down on the nose, light pressure at the rear of the plane is all that's needed.
run in strips till it's gone, then sand smooth and finish as desired.
Large areas will call for a few blade changes along the way.
For areas that have a heavy curve, I've used a belt sander and rapid movement, don't let it sit anywhere because it will form flats that will take forever to fair in.
