Don't know if anybody ever offered a solution.

Here's what I did/done/do: Use stranded body filler, the stuff with fibre glass mixed into it.

Goop it on, let it dry, and sand it flat. Works really well.

I posted this on a similar question on main forum. Try it.

You can try using a clear P-TEX candle. Not sure what Wainman use has base plastic could be PET or maybe UHMWPE (P-Tex, Durasurf) base looks opaque could be UHMWPE. Idea is to clean up area with blade and some Isopropyl alcohol. You light the candle and drip the melted plastic into area building it up. Then just take a plastic scraper and level it out again done.

Video below gives you a basic idea.

I just used this on a board I just bought

http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/st ... &langId=-1

Clean and sand the gouge with 220 grit
cut a thin strip of this and stick it in the gouge
get a wider strip and cover the filled gouge
UV cure in the sun
sand it down with maybe a 120 at first and 220 grit sandpaper at the end

Not sure how it would work if the gouge was deep as the thing uses UV to cure. Maybe do one layer at a time.

Just did this today and it was really easy.
