In my case both would be a huge issue...non skid doesn't have to be tough on anything...just non-slippery like Interlux interdeck. My girl and dog are up there a lot both at the dock and underway. It would be a disaster without non-skid.
Glossy (not color) on my boat would be a nagging glare issue when piloting from the lower station which I do a lot because of seasonal cruising..
Often things on boats are done for looks rather than practicality but in Fotoman's case the issues were thought out and addressed to his satisfaction...
On every boat it could be different so both options should be addressed in every case.
