    Default Repair to gouge in royalex

    Hi, the dart took a large and sharp bite out of my canoe today... It left quite a deep gouge to the royalex. Right through to the inner core, though not all the way through. There was a very large bulge on the inside face.



    I have had a very careful go with boiling water and a heat gun, which has managed to pop the royalex back roughly into shape on the inside and outside. However there is the not too small matter of repairing the gouge through to the foam / ABS.

    Does anyone have any tips on this repair? Wests G-fex???

    Thanks,
    Matt
