Thanks for your info. When I had Ipanema's hull done with Awl grip 5 years ago, the also covered the non-skid sections of the stern, making them quite skiddy. I complained and they added an extra layer with a few grains of sand or something like that which made the better. However, I did not like the look of it compared with the original finish. Because Ipanemas Faux-teak is in general good, after what you tell me I will try to get some thinner paint to have a few touches in the areas where it is missing, hopefully not reducing too much the pattern.
Interested in finding out if people have used other methods to deal with the problem
By the way, the hull painted wit Awl grip still looks shining after more than 5 years and with very little work. I will use it on the deck when ready to do it in a year or two
