I've got, but haven't used yet, a tube of 'Plastic Padding Gelcoat Filler'. Looks like the right stuff and the guy who sold it to me said it would do the trick.

Other than that I'm a gelcoat virgin as well.

Have you tried chatting up your local boat repairer? Always a good source of info.

A question from Mr I Bentley of Sale, Cheshire:

I've been in contact with them and although he said that he'd need to see one to see what sort of job it would be, he thinks it would be in the region of £150-£200.

Here's some possibilities.
