Default Non-skid chip repair

I have a few of small chips (1/8Ē or less) and on my non-skid. I thought I read a post where someone found an alternative to gelcoat (epoxy, sealant, etc) which was a perfect match to the dream white.

Looking for any recommendations or a link to the original post.

Related question ... is the non-skid diamond mold pattern made from just gelcoat or is gelcoat applied over a patterned substrate? I have some areas where the edges are dark and I cannot determine if the gelcoat is worn thru or itís a mark on top that needs to be cleaned. Iím afraid if the gelcoat is thin that if I go to town on it that itíll wear thru deeper and get worse. If itís the full thickness then I have plenty of margin.

Itís all gelcoat. You can get reverse pattern stamps to repair it but this requires using new gelcoat.

A good fiberglass guy can make a mold from the surrounding non-skid and use it to match the pattern after repairing the chips. I had a similar job done on a decent size area and it came out great. In addition a good guy will be able to match the color due to any fading throughout the years.
