Those are made of fiberglass, not carbon fiber. Look up fiberglass repair. They are plenty fixable.

Since you don't know for sure what it is made of - you can put epoxy resin into the scratches OR maybe fill them with epoxy and put a FG patch over it???

Easy enough to do - sand it down a bit, then just paint the epoxy on there, lay a piece of FG over it and once it turns clear, you done! Sand drips and such - then paint with resin again, doubly done. Easy Peasy.
What duck?

I was wanting to meet the person with a carbon fiber duck boat.

I am in the process of reinforcing my Momarsh DP with a Kevlar bottom. Material cost me less than $200. I felt that carbon fiber would be too brittle and Kevlar would provide better puncture resistance and flexibility. I'll post some pics.

Cheers!
