Non skid for driftboat interior

Ready to paint the interior and as with most major steps like this one, have over-researched and have "analysis paralysis". Don't want an extremely rough deck and need it to be light gray, so landed on Durabak for now. Gonna use the "smooth" version (vs their "non skid" product with rubber granules) and apply with a relatively low knap roller. Also like Kiwigrip but it seems more likely to build a relatively rough/bumpy finish ? Anyone had good or not so good experience with Durabak or something you like a lot better ?

I'm not saying coatings like Durabak are bad but I don't use them. There will come a time when you want to glue something new on the boat. Or repair it. Which is a lot easier if rubber isn't there. For non skid you can buy ground walnut shell chips at the paint store. And sprinkle that onto wet resin, or into wet paint.
