Don't use epoxy... use a good sealant... if it is deck hardware, butyl rubber tape works quite well. Available at most glaziers...
Also, pot any holes, as mitiempo said, if the deck is cored.
If you do the countersinking of the holes, you can tighten down the bolts completely, unlike what Billyruffin says... Most people can't hold the bolt steady enough and get good enough access to the nut to prevent them from breaking the sealant seal if they let it cure first. Remember to run the countersink bit in reverse so as not to take away too much fiberglass.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
