Mozzy,
Sand back just enough to get it flat and ďkeyed upĒ use a da sander if poss. 120g.
Clean / acetone.
Yes mix the griptex with the catalysed gel. Griptex are plastic granules like fine sand.
Iíd use medium (I have some!) if it was a sitting area Iíd use fine Esp on gel which is thick.
Use a generous amount of gelcoat on roller donít be shy, I think it probably doesnít need thickening thatís all.
Very much Worth practicing on some scrap to get the effect youíre after. How heavily loaded roller is, thickning of gel, proportion of griptex.

Marineware.
A half litre sized tin is about £50. Itís ridiculous.
For info I did the entire i14 non skid area (dancefloor, foredeck, gunwales) with about a quarter of said Tin. So you donít need loads.
