Bottom Paint Divet(s) - How to fill/fair
I have one spot in the bottom paint near the bow where a silver dollar sized divet of paint is missing. It looks to be about 1/16"-1/8" deep and it's covered with last years anti-fouling paint, so I can't really tell if this is just where built up paint came away, or if the barrier coat failed to adhere in that spot.
In any case, my plan is to bottom paint w a couple coats of high quality anti-fouling paint. And then when my next bottom paint is due, soda blast, fair and start from the original gelcoat.
So in the mean time, what type of filler should I use to fair this spot before the bottom gets painted? I want something that's going to stick, but not something that will be impervious to soda blasting down the line.
