I really like I plastic padding gelcoat filler, but it is a funny colour white.

The CSM should be encapsulated in resin so i would have thought its waterproof even if it's showing.
Will post few pics tomorrow.

Have tried to call Avon numerous times...and emailed.

Anybody think they may know a close match????

The chips are small enough but not microscopic.

I like to make a good job of things...its a very very tidy little Rib so don't want to spoil it by botching anything. A close colourmatch is good enough though.

Might even just touch in the chips to keep the water out and finish them.nicely at a later stage.

Yip. Gel is waterproof, resin isn't 100%.
