The original fix was removing the old gelcoat? then I think they were grinding out the spider cracks? filling with epoxy and awlgrip primer and paint. Since they lost the law suit with cook I dont know what the fix is now but it is worse then just discoloring gel coat. I have heard over 200 boats were built with the bad gel coat? I also heard numbers of $250,000.00 per boat to repair depending on boat size.
