How about sand in the paint?

Good idea. I hadn't considered that.

Interlux does make a grit to mix with the paint to create a non-skid surface,
I used Kiwigrip on one Hobie and it worked out very well, I used masking tape to create outlines similar to the original Hobie layout.
The kiwigrip is gentle on your butt & knees too. some tapes are like coarse sandpaper.
