Transome appearance

The new to me Rib is 20 years old and generally in very good condition for its age. The transom has over the years had many drill holes in it which are sealed with CT1 or similar. I was wondering if there is a neat way to make the transom look visually better once I have finished fitting my bits and pieces

you could flow coat it fill all the dents & dings and paint over them you can leave a textured finish dabbing it with a sponge

Why flowcoat then paint or am I reading that wrong? Just flowcoat it and call it good.

Personally I fill any big holes with epoxy, poly resin or gelcaot filler, depending on what's appropriate, and then flowcoat over.
