Best way to fill these large openings.
I've decided to bite the bullet with regards to the white areas on my boat and paint them, this means that I can fill some of the holes that the previous owner had cut (not very accurately) for various purposes.
This first hole had some perspex screwed onto in order to provide light for the quarter berth, there is another one on the opposite side of the cockpit that's just far enough from symmetry with this one that you notice it. :P
This second hole was cut at the front of the cockpit for a bilge pump, a silly place to put it IMO and I want to fill it as well.
As you can see the thickness of laminate for the cockpit is very thin (6mm), structurally this isn't an issue I intend to but in some reinforcing beams below, however I'm at a loss for the best technique to fill the cut outs which are far far bigger than the laminate thickness.
(N.B. West system epoxy is my preferred material of choice for this job)
Any advice much appreciated.
