Fill for screw holes

I'm leaning towards removing the screws/snaps on the floor that were there for carpet that did not come with the boat. Go with Velcro or new screws if we install carpet down the road. Looking for a suggestion of a product to fill or patch the holes that will be left behind. Thanks in advance. Basic white color deck.

I would use a can of the Spectrum gelcoat patch kit. It is thick enough to fill your holes. I would suggest halving the can. Use half for the initial fill let it cure completely and then go back with the 2nd half and slightly overfill. The gelcoat will shrink so doing it in one big fill will leave divots.

I've always used this. Works great and can be color matched to the gel if the white or grey doesn't match.
