Chidago, I have a quick question and need to draw from your expertise in fiberglass repair and painting. I recently purchased a used IOM as that is what they race her in Singapore. When I purchased it, I knew it needed a little TLC, sanding and a new coat of paint. In sanding off the the bad paint job adn exposing the white under it followed by the grey primer, I have discovered a couple of spots that need to have either some fiberglass patched or just some epoxy mixed with micro balloons.

My question is, it is not a whole in the hull, just an aread that needs to be filled and sanded before I prime and paint. The spot is about the size of a dime. I tried bondo last night and it reacted with the paint that was used and caused the white to resolubalize and made a big damn mess that just finished sanding.

What do you recommend me do as a fix?

I also have a 1/16 spot on the other side of the deck that is soft and I think if i keep sanding, it would cause a whole.

Give me your thoughts O great one.
