I wonder if the chine and sheer were sanded too much, and the wood exposed in some places? To find out, I would sand off the paint adjacent to one of the stains, and experiment with water or alcohol to see if there are any areas that immediately go dark when wet. If these stains developed over three days, the exposed areas might be very small, though. Assuming that you'll be applying more epoxy at some point , let it dry out first. It might take a while.

The linear stain across the deck and hatch is strange. It lines up. I would look for bare wood at the edges here, but perhaps there is something else going on.

Nice onlay, BTW. Chinese?
