Alternatively, you could ignore it and live with it until the time comes to reef out the old and recaulk.
Ah, I think I combined two thoughts. There are only a couple of small spots that need the caulk replaced because it is leaking. All the caulk on the entire 54ft deck is standing proud.

I might just wait it out, but it's making cleaning harder and the proud caulk keeps water from running off as easily as it should.
