I have read extensive suggestions about restoring the original color. Does anyone have any suggestions in restoring the color on the nonskid / bow section of a Montauk. I am just concerned about making these areas to slick for proper footing.

Restore it just as if it were "flat" fiberglass elsewhere on your boat. Try color restorer first, and if that doesn't cut it go to rubbing compounds; wax it when you're done to protect it and to keep the color you brought back; the molded deformations of the non-skid are what to rely on so you won't slip.

Lots of earlier posts on restoring and polishing products, methods, etc.

Adding to what Kingfish said, just be sure to wipe off and buff up the compound BEFORE it starts to dry. Use a rough surface towel, and do small sections at a time.

i had to use a light bronze wire wheel to get down in the cracks of the non-skid area. went over with compound. worked well. just keep an eye on what you are doing, steve out.
