Paint over permanent marker? or, can I draw on my deck?

I'm well into my deck repair project and I have the deck almost bare. I'm removing everything. There are a lot of old holes improperly patched and a lot of hardware I'm either not re-installing or installing differently. I also need to recore in spots.

I want to mark my deck somehow, so I'll remember which holes to cover up and which ones I'll reuse. I also want to mark my deck as I tap all over listeninig for dead spots so I'll know where to cut.

What can I use to mark my deck that won't later adversly effect my paint job?

I'm planning on light sanding, epoxy coating over my cut joints and non-skid, and painting with Perfection. I assume the sanding or degreaser will take care of something like a Sharpie right?

sharpies are alky based so stove fuel will take it right off. or even just alcohol prep pads for shots work well unless its a large area

Put tape over the holes you're going to use again.

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.

I'd vote for the Sharpie and just wipe it off with alcohol afterwards. Or, you could use some "Dry Erase" whiteboard markers, and just rub them off afterwards. As long as it doesn't rain first.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll try the "dry erase" markers Hellosailor recommended. I've been keeping the deck covered since I've been pulling everything off, so I won't have to worry about the marks coming off until I want them off.
