Filling the weave

I sheathed the decks (fore & aft) of my C16 about two weeks ago using West System 105/206.  I then got on with the combing and building a dolly for the boat.

I am now ready to fill the weave and complete the final epoxy coating of the decks.

My question is:  Having delayed this task, will I need to sand the decks (lightly) before applying the first (weave-filling) coat of epoxy, or can I simply go ahead ?

RE: Filling the weave

Absolutely, I used west system in the past and you should wash the decks and let them dry then lightly sand (NO heavy hands). I have had no problems
