Paint over filled holes before you drill new ones. If you filled correctly it won't matter if they line up after painting. Besides you may want to reconfig the deck layout or buy new hardware that you aren't planning on currently. You can then;
-tape the mounting area over the paint/nonskid when complete.
-then drill oversized holes, that way when you fill/redrill/bed/mount, you won't get epoxy or sealant on your new paint. I'm mounting a primary today and the pics/ procedure will be my next entry.
The only holes I didn't completely fill and fair were the deck organizers, because I knew I was reusing them, and I wanted to keep a reference to their mounting locations. 4 months later I've decided to buy new ones and the holes don't line up. In hindsight I would've filled, faired and painted over all the old holes.
