I started sanding the drains around my hatches to have the deck repainted and I found some small voids underneath the gel.  It looks like there were air bubbles or the resin didn't fully penetrate.  Either way I sanded them out and I was going to use a two part epoxy, PC-11 to fill them, then sand them smooth for repainting..  Thats what the marine store recommended. 

Does this sound like the correct method? or should I use another type of epxoy. Also how much gel do I have to sand off.  Just so the surface is smooth or do I have to go all the way down the underlying glass? Thanks for the help guys.

Don't know what PC-11 is but you can do it that way or you can thicken the epoxy with cabosil to a paste (commonly called peanut butter because of the consistency) and fill it with the paste. This is how I would do it.

Or use six 10 epoxy in the caulk gun and a old credit card to smooth it out. Once you get the hang of it you won't need to sand. There is no mixing involved.
