The high-build primer acts as a sort of final step to the initial and major portion of the pre-painting surface preparations, evening out the various textures of the surface and filling or otherwise highlighting small flaws in the substrate, including pinholes in fairing material or exposed laminate and other areas requiring touch-up for other reasons.    Now, with the sanding complete, I vacuumed and solvent-washed the decks so I could continue the work.

With the decks clean, and armed with a headlamp to help locate the various small flaws that could be otherwise hard to see, I went over the decks with some fine epoxy fairing compound, troweling it in to whatever surface interruptions I found:  areas of slight unevenness; pinholes; gelcoat dings that hadn’t been previously filled, and whatever else seemed to call for it.
