I recently picked up a 250WK and there are a number of nicks on the leading edge of the wing. Documentation suggests this is epoxy, not resin.

Does anyone have information on patching/smoothing these edges?

Thanks,

Tough to say without pictures but for small gouges and cracks I've had good luck with Marine Tex but there are other products out there that work just as well
