I think it is the dry erase that caused the issues. I use the markers HD sales in the tool section and they seem to work very well. Work better than magic markers that dry out to soon. But for lines I use those big pencils we used in first and second grade. HD sales them and the over size sharpeners too. The rectangle carpenter pencils are hard to sharpen without marking up a knife blade. I like the fat lead doesn't break as easy as a #2 and a light sanding removes the marks. I almost never sand off marker marks.

Agreed. Wouldn’t surprise me if they had some sort of wax in them to assist with the dry erase.

Shoulda grabbed a pencil...

Just oush test with a screwdriver and cut out anything not attached well with a sander. Make a bed about an inch each side and feather to zero. So you have say a 2" wide hole. Then lay thickened epoxy in the groove and press in one or two pieces of 6 oz woven in and wet in place.

Let it cure and sand it flat. If you have low spots still; just fill them with fairing compound.

Don't leave anything loose there or it will want to delam from hydraulics.

You'll gain more repairing than you will grinding out or leaving weak crud. If it was up near the gunwhale I might let it go, but not near waterline.

Yeap. Roger that.

If it fails the push test, it’s getting ground.

Thanks as always for the feedback, gents.

I know how painful glass issues can be. For the sake of sleeping well use a graphite pencil in future. Odd spots would be fine to grind, anything that's more than 10-20% I'd sand back the fairing tape over and refair.
