    West system epoxy with thickener (filler) works well.

    What kind of insulation do you have inside? Sometimes boats can be faired a lot from inside with a hydraulic jack on a post.

    Make a "fairing" mix of epoxy and a filler.
    Go down to the " Boatbuilding, sub forum, fiberglass". Ask there.
    I havn't looked, but maybe these folks have a suitable product. Just don't ise "Bondo".
