Repair Gouge in top
I have a couple spots on the top edge of my board, above the metal. that have some small gouges- not exactly sure, but one might go past the top layer of plastic. None are more than half an inch long.
There are also some other spots with tiny nicks, and I would like to fill them so that water does not creep into the spaces.

I have searched and I find several techniques for the bottom, but is it safe to just fill the top gouges with superglue or something similar? I have seen superglue dissolve some materials, so I am just checking if this is okay.

If not, what product can I use for small gouges like this?

Thanks in advance

A picture is worth 1000 words... a 2 part epoxy will most likely hold up longer than glue and can be sanded smooth after it cures to smooth it out and blend into the contour. If there's a small patch that's separating then put some epoxy in the crack and squeeze it shut with a small c-clamp.

This is the worst one. Not that big, I know, but I just wanted to check anyway.

Just use a decent 2 part epoxy like jb weld marine and build the shape back up to mesh into the contour of the board. You can sand it with sandpaper to make it smooth and fine tune it. Overlap the unaffected area slightly so it becomes one with the board.

Epoxy. Search the forum and you'll find instructions/techniques.
