Hi,ive been in the fiberglass business for 35 years,the only time i have seen that type of damage,is when the boat caught on fire,OR was very close to something burning.OR some EXTREME HEAT,to repair those chips (for lack of a better descriptive word) i would take an AWL,(pointed instrument) (before sanding) and pop those suckers out of there,take your time,and dont miss any.then using a spray gun,i would shoot every hole with ACETONE (after checking that your paint will withstand the acetone) AFTER all are popped out and sprayed with acetone, (and dried good)DONT use BONDO type materials,fill all those places with a 2 part epoxy,with a little filler, (micro baloons) make sure that those places are a little high, THEN you can sand. BUT forget #1 AND # 2,number3 is the ONLY decent option,have fun....
