Deck Refinish

Alright, here's the deal:

I'm about to embark on the lovely task of refinishing my deck. Paint, non-skid, rebedding/adding new hardware. Currently my game plan is:

-Strip all hardware.
-Fill all unused holes with thickened epoxy.
-Overdrill, pot, and redrill all holes that will take new/reused hardware.
-Paint deck/nonskid.
-Rebed and mount all hardware.

My questions are:

1) What product is best used to rebed the hardware, such as stanchions, organizers, traveler standoffs, ect? 3m 4200? 101?

2)Anybody know the correct procedures for rebedding the chainplates? they enter through the deck and mount to interior bulkheads.

I'm sure there will be more to come. Thanks in advance for any help.
