Id agree with the "clear out any duff foam and then rebuild using epoxy and fillers" option but id like to add that it should be done with an angle grinder or similar high speed powertool, none of this pansy 'carefull removal'  stuff....

Isis, i agree. If you don't have access to an angle grinder then use a belt sander with 60grit paper. Take the board down to a point where there is no more damaged foam and then make a thick bog using epoxy resin, microfibres and maybe some colloidal silica to ensure you have a thick enough paste so it is easy to work with.

Let this go off and then start sanding back to the right shape. (best bet is to leave at least one end of the board the right height so you have a base mark to work to.)

When you are nearing the correct shape then you might want to use a lighter mixture of fillers so you can sand it more easily as it will be a little softer. Maybe some ultralite fairing fillers or simply some micro balloons.

Sand till very smooth... sell boat... buy a cherub... go sailing

(ps that is what i would do, i have limited experience so stand to be corrected by anyone with a better idea!!)

to be honest what tim has just said is exactly what i would also do, just remember be brave it may sound a bit extreme or risky taking an angle grinder to your foils but its the only realistic way you can get a good strong repair.

That's exactly the colour scheme I saw in a house we visited last year! I didn't know you lived in Brighton, redback!

Oooops sorry, that was a blonde moment...

Seriously, what's hit you? Do you still sail at WeirWood? Have you finally run out of water?

You see, that's what happens when you try to run over an Osprey...... 

Blimey, I bet you stopped quickly; straight over the handle bars. !!!!

And I'll have you know young lady (you know who you are) that we are now 65% full at Weir Wood.  I have not hit any submerged masonary for a few weeks now
