Recommendations to get some traction on top of the hulls?? Terribly slippery when wet.

Scrub with a powdered cleanser.

Worth a first attempt. New boats are always slippery. We always scrub the tramps before sailing if possible. They are slippery as sn-t when wet.

I wear Teva sandals when the wind is cranking and I want to be sure that I won't slip while moving around the boat.
