Cleaning Non-Skid Boat Decks - The Boat Galley 1 Apr 2016 We've found that using a sprayer of some type – a tank sprayer, Aquabot or cockpit shower – works better than just pouring water due to having a bit of force behind it to push the dirt and soap out of the non-skid. We also have a lot of textured fiberglass trim in the boat, and it's always been a pain to clean. Krud Kutter with a toothbrush was the best way I'd found, but it was pretty labor intensive.
