    What do you use to fill minor dents n dings. I'm thinking of something like wood filler etc. Surface will be painted and above water line. Also non flex area.
    I've been thinking of something like bondo but I sort of remember someone saying not to use it and don't remember why.
    thanks
    have a good one

    how minor of dents n dings?

    I have taken some out before with wetting the wood and then placing a wet rag on top of the area and then placing a hot iron on it or a heat gun.

    Yeah NO I don't think that will work.Largest area wise is about the size of a quarter and about as deep.

    But thanks

    Boat building epoxy thickened with wood flour.
    That plug will be the last trace of that boat on this planet.
    Sands easy and will last forever.
    It's the only thing that will keep the water and moisture out of the repair.
    Paint isn't waterproof so you still have to deal with water intrusion unless you epoxy coat the wood before painting.
