Nice looking job with the gel coat. Looks like you sprayed it on.

I'd suggest using Butyl tape for bedding any hardware that is fastened onto your nice new gel coated deck. Need Butyl Tape ?? Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at
Stores that sell RV supplies would likely carry a similar product.
Here is an article on re-bedding deck hardware: Re-Bedding Deck Hardware Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at
Good luck.
