is Awlcat #3 the proper brushing convertor to use with Awl-G8044Q?
Yes, Awlcat #3 is brushing/rolling converter. It's two parts base color to one part converter.
If there is awlgrip already on the fiberglass and mast do you need to use this product or can you just sand and apply a new coat?
You need to mix in the converter as this is the catalyst that dries the paint. Follow instructions on paint can carefully. After mixing let it cure for the specified time and then use a roller and tip with a brush. Careful to avoid runs.
I have always used brush or spray converter.
I have had great success with this product.
Be careful with the temperature outdoors when you use this product, otherwise it is great.

Worked perfectly as usual
Made applying Awlgrip topcoat easy with brush and roller. Always add the minimum amounts of T0031 reducer and add small amounts until the paint is the proper consistency. If it's too thin you'll create a lot of work for yourself, too thick and you'll run out of paint and will have too thick of a layer. Read AwlGrip's data sheets over-and-over-and-over. Contact them with questions. They are VERY helpful and informative.
