Filling in the gaps (j boat hull discrepancies)

I planked a 32 inch J boat hull several years ago and am just getting back to it. It's my first attempt at scratch building and this thing looks great from some angles, but from others, it has too many low places to sand out! Is there any product which I can use to cover larger areas, then just "fair" it in?
I'm thinking something between bondo and sandable primer. This hull is already paper-thin in places.
