Ground out all cracks and spider webs down to good glass, re-glassed the patches back. Sanded the hull with 60 grit, applied fairing coat, then guide coat. Wet sanded half the hull today, try to finish rest tomorrow. My plan is to tip and roll gelcoat on Friday. Give a day or two to harden, then wet sand and buff it out. Need it get flipped back over as soon as possible, still alot to do. Over all the hull is in great shape, happy with how it's turning out.

Gel coated the hull today, came out great. Did the roll and tip method, got good coverage, maybe a little more work but a whole lot less mess. Will take more wet sanding, oh well.

We used a pressure pot sprayer on mine. I came out with a light orange peel. But left it as it was. I applaud you for wet sanding. Looking good.

Wet sanded down to 220 grit, still a ways to go but looks great, couple more days and I'll have her all polished out.

All polished out and waxed, came out nice. Has some brush marks, a couple of spots I sanded through, but over all real happy with how it turned out. No pin holes or bubbles. If I ever do another hull I'll still use the roll and tip method but no block sanding after the gel coat, just wet sand by hand. When I block sanded it took to much of the high spots and not enough of the lows. Try to get her flipped back over and start working every thing else.
