Sylvester, thanks, and hope you had a good holiday
Slick Nick, if you really want it smooth then you can do one of two things, the first method (the one that I prefer, but its not always possible to do) is to scuff the area good with a grinder (36grit)(an angle die grinder w/ roloc 3" pads works good) and then to apply a light layer of matting and then go over it while still wet with a light veiling of cheesecloth (looks like woven roving only extremely fine, about 3 or 4 oz cloth) no need for overlaps, just apply, wait for it to kick and then gelcoat or paint right over it (paint will get rid of the resiny smell better than gel, and won't ever get sticky)
The second (and easier) method is to simply scuff the area, and then slick it with mud (bondo, putty, filler, etc) then use a DA and 80 or 150 grit, then paint over the top.
I guess you could also just gel it multiple times, sanding in between each coat, but I prefer the first two ways over that.
Well, hope that I helped, gotta go, my fingers are tired of typing. Check back soon.

Nick, If you use dura-tec clear mixed with your gel you will get a smooth non tacky finish,if you dont it will always stay slightly tacky and if you use a wax additive it will stay dull and will be hard to clean. Spark.

Nick, duratec (you really like that duraclear dont ya spark...)also makes a product called base primer (707-051) which is basically sprayable bondo, if you brush, roll, or spray a heavy coat of that, you can sand it down and paint over it, but for aggressive, deep weaves like heavier knytex, or johnston composites, or especially woven roving, I would go with the light veiling, although it will add a small amount of weight, it will give the best results.
Hey spark, any luck on selling your boat?
Hey 46tomcat, I heard a rumor the other day that shortly after your 46 was delivered, you had severe delaminations on the deck? Any truth to that, or was it merely the dreaded "skaterhater" gossip?
