Was starting to get the idea that I was the only one who was willing to use 'non-marine' products!
I've actually used that stuff as non-skid, held up very well. They make several different types of those panels, from a very aggressive diamond pattern to a smoother pebble finish than shown in the link.
On a recore, I layed several layers of cloth, then scuffed the bottom of the panel and cut it out to the shape I wanted the non-skid to be then bonded it with resin, I used thickened epoxy aroung the edge to make a smooth transition.
Need to recore a couple sections of the deck on my Ariel, debating that again, or another off-the-wall idea I have.
It IS fiberglass, so any way you would normally bond glass will work. It curves easily, but does NOT make compound curves.
