. Sometimes that is a nice feature. Even on the worst day, 1708 is way less messy than regular mat. I had a task patching 18 smaller holes in a panel a month ago and i just cut a bunch of patches, ruffled them a little to make them less defined. Then i just stick them to the side of the mixing cup and pick them up with a brush a patch at a time. Never touched anything with my hands. Not sure these images works. This was not Structural but 2-3 layer biax capped the hole underneath. I had a 1:2-1:4 bevel on top, filled with hull and deck putty using a syringe and then gelcoat. That beige albin color was hard to match starting with white gelcoat….
Hopefully these dropbox images comes through
