Fiber Reinforced Polyester such as Kitty Hair or Duraglass will do with a good barrier coat however if budget allows for it the 3M Reinforced Vinyl Esther might do nicely too especially if you are going to leave the boat on the water however I usually see it used to do repairs over the fiberglass mat and then faired over and not underneath the mat. West 403 or 404 with will also do nicely especially in high stress areas at the pivot bolt, lock pin and cable attachment point.
Don't use a polyester automotive filler that has talc in it.
