I am curious which grooves you are referring to. If you are referring to the main and lazarete hatches you can use either polysulphide or thickened epoxy colored with graphite. The polysulphide is affected by petroleum distilates but given the quick drying time of your sealant and infrequent application it should be okay. It can be a problem with teak oils that contain petroleum distilates. If you are referring to the seams in the deck DON'T use any hard finish. I know Interlux just tells you not to use the gloss on decks but their advise won't do you any good as your boat sails away from you while you watch from the water!
