Small cosmetic patches to carbon

Got by Burnham Boat Sling carrier and immediately dropped my Fuze taking it off because I'm not used to transporting boats upside down (can't slide it back and forth from the rear of the vehicle). Little 3/4 inch chip at the bow tip, but I can see the dark material below the first layer.

What is the recommended fill to keep the damage from growing?

When I destroyed my Vantage I used a two part epoxy for the carbon repairs. After those repairs were cured and sanded I still had small dimples and uneven areas in the repaired areas as well as several areas that were just chips in the outer coating.

I used a light weight body filler called Micro Lite QT6370, from NAPA. It's easy to work with and sands smooth.
