What should I do about this topsheet chip?

Not sure how it happened but I looked down and it was chipped Possibly someone running over it in a line?

I just want to know what you more experienced people would suggest as a course of action.





Cheers in advance!

Top sheet repairs are generally better than if that had happened on your base. You could cut that part out, it looks like it is flaking off, and fill it with an epoxy. I won't look like the same color, but it can help water from getting down into your core. I don't know how deep that cut is though

Get some marine epoxy, inject it under the chip, put wax paper over the chip, place a small block of wood on top(make sure top piece covers repair area) and bottom, clamp together with a c-clamp, allow to dry for 24-36 hours, good as new.

This, and YES a C clamp is critical for it to work properly done this about a 100 times ever super\crazy glue will work in a pinch.
