Non-skid

My daily routine involves making coffee, green tea and black tea and then rowing for about 30 minutes for exercise, then boat chores until it gets too hot. Then I head to the store, both to escape the heat and to buy dinner, then I do this blog, walk the docks for an hour and finally shower and the sack. This morning the decks were too wet to start back into my painting so instead I put some more teak oil on the boat's teak, this time on the teak strips under feet in the cockpit.
I finally gave up trying to waterproof the dodger, making a terrible hash out of it in the process.
It looks great now after I cut a new piece of sunbrella to snap in place over the top of it.
I finally got rid of the dorade framing under the dodger.
About mid morning finally the dew had all evaporated, so I started painting the non skid on the boat using a type of dusty sand that you mix in with the paint.
Painting it white unfortunately means that each bit of dirt shows up very clearly.
Looking at that photo now, I see that it is very hard to differentiate between the white walkways that have a special grip like material on them compared to the yellow. This next one shows it a bit better.
Anyway, the boat now looks terrific!
