Re: OK, so I'm Sanding My Bottom...
Brian is right about making a mold for the surface when applying 'putty'. Something like a thin plexiglass sheet can leave a nice fair surface or cut up a plastic milk gallon and use the smooth side for small patches. You will have to come up with a way (duct tape, dead men) of applying light pressure to your repair to hold the mold in place evenly. Even thin plywood (< 1/8" thick) can make a decent mold and bend to the shape of the hull. Any wood left on is easier to sand off then fiberglass/FRP.
