I am finally getting around to fixing these holes and am using Marine-Tex. Since much of it fell through the hole, now that it has dried, I am left needing more to completely finish filling the holes.

Am I ok adding more marine tex to the already dried stuff?
Do I sand first before applying more?

If you can get to it, I would sand it just a tad with some 80 grit, then clean with acetone.

I sanded then used another tube of Marine Tex but can still see dimples where the bolt holes were...I must be doing something wrong! I thought for sure that with the holes partially filled and dry, they would fill right up!

As it sets and dries, it will shrink up slightly.
To get ride of the holes completely requires over filling, then sanding, primer, block sanding to find low spots, fill, repeat, then paint. Did you bevel the top of the bolt holes ?

I refilled and they are now beveled somewhat...I haven't had a chance to sand them back down again.
