Is one side finished and the other rough for bonding? Thanks for the site!
Bonding shoudn't be an issue.
Just scuff sand the underside with 80 grit and bed in thickened epoxy.

Done carefully you will have a smooth solid surface. The only fairing will be at joints and edges. Way easier than dealing with a large flat surface.
