Help needed

I've been trying to pluck up enough courage to post this, so here we go.
As some may know I have just finished restoring my boat, so I have been working in the back garden for a while.

Ok, deep breath…..

For sometime now I've suspected that my wife may be cheating on me. You know the sort of thing. The phone rings, I answer, someone hangs up.

Recently she has started going out 'with the girls' a lot and when I ask which girls it's always "Just some friends, you don't know them".

I always used to keep an eye out for her taxi coming home but now she always walks up to the house although I can hear a car setting off as if she has just got out of one around the corner.

The other day I picked up her mobile, just to see what time it was, and she went crazy, screaming at me that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her.

Anyway, I have never approached the subject with her. I kind of think deep down I don't really want to know the truth. But then last night she went out again and I decided that I would check up on her.

Around the time she was due home I decided to hide behind my boat which I knew would give me a good view of the whole street so I could see which car she got out of on her return.

It was whilst crouched behind my boat that I noticed a huge chip on one of the centre chines.
Do you think I should cut the area back, fill with epoxy and try to spray the area or would gelcoat filler do the job just as well?
