I just sanded my Morris to prepare for a fresh paint job. I see that some of the "dings" are into the filler or at least down to it. There is one particular gouge that is about four inches long and 3/8th wide that is not sanding out (I dare not actually). The question is what the best and easiest fill will be? The damage is to the three coats of paint that are currently on the boat. Should I try to build paint up in these spots or is there another trick? The current paint is old Pettit Topside enamel. I am putting (a gorgeous) Epiphane enamel over this. I am not looking for 100% perfection. This old girl get's used on trips and has some dings to show for it. That said, I would like to get it close to right. Also, what issue was the article about restoring an older canvas in?
