I stick wet and dry to the deck and paint it.
This can easily be repainted/touched up.

Hi, when putting anti slip on my Severn lifeboat I used Rustoleum textured spray paint, got mine from B&Q . It's available in a range of colours one easily over painted.

Hi. I had a similar problem a few years ago, I used the grit that comes bagged for the bottom of bird cages, just make sure you get the one without the cuttlefish grains, it can be applied to the decks on top of a thin coat of pva when dry remove surplus, then it can be painted in your chosen colour using a soft brush.
