You can also get rid of the problem by cutting strips from a polyethylene dropcloth and smoothing them onto the edge of the tape with a squeegee. The plastic presses the selvedge down and redistributes the epoxy to fill raised glass, leaving a smooth transition.
You definititely want to practice this before you try it on the boat. It's a learned skill and if you do it for the first time when putting the tape on the boat, guaranteed sanding party later.
