The more you show us the more it looks like a paint job is in order.. in which case just fill and fair, and then get some buddies and do a roll and tip job on it when things warm up...
I know the topsides are the hull I was saying that I didn't think it needed a pint job because except for the 3 dings in that one area I tried to fix, and the random scratch section (must have be rubbing on something) the topsides/hull is beautiful. There are two other scrapes in the blue stripe but I'm trying to forget those since matching that blue would be a real challenge (but I'll probably try anyways, can always wipe it off...)

Note: Black streaks have since been wiped off one of those attached photos.
