There are lifting eyes fitted further back and the colour difference is deck paint I think. I am assuming its impact damage caused by a dive bottle or similar.

Past the point of no return

I've ground out the damaged area, I now plan to fill with a chopped fiber resin mix and the lay over 4 sheets to finish, sand the area flat and repaint entire deck.

Will this be a good repair?
