Hello new here and I was given an American fiberglass canoe and it is in need of some repair. Its had some filler put on spots. Ive sanded most of it off since it was just put on and left. I'm pretty sure it doesnt have any holes in it. The reason for the filler was it was damaged in a storm when the wind blew it up against a tree.
It also has some small holes along the ridge on the bottom(not sure of the proper term) they don't go thru bigest is about a 1\4 of an inch or smaller and it does have a chunck out of the ridge about 2inches or so.
I've got some bondo fiberglass jelly filler I think thats what it is for repair.
For repairing the holes should I get some fibrglass strips and fix those or can they just be filled in and sanded. I know I'll need some for the chunck thats missing.
Its also got some spider cracks that I read were ok? but it does feel like in some spots it has a little more give than in others should I be worried about that?

I just sand them a little bit and then fill them with two part Epoxy.
