Patching up Glass

My hull is a tale of two halves.

On one side the glassing has gone well, but on the other side there are some areas on the lap joints/chines where the glass has not stuck down. I thin I can fix this by wodging a thing mix of epoxy filler under there flapping sections, however, on the bow, where the chine taper because of the gaines, I have had to cut a away a short section of glass. I think I can get round this by filling and fairing down, but  I would be glad to hear people's thoughts.

There is an additional strip of glass to add to the bow and the stern, so I think I will add this and then  fair into this. Might make more sense. I am sure once this is don ;they'll never know". the main thing is trying to ensure that I have no potential water ingress points on the hull.

Either way this wee issue has caused me a little bit of time which is irritating as FB sent me the rails today which I could do with gluing the scarfs together on!

Glass cut away from the gains at the bow. To be faired with filler me thinks.
