Default Fiberglass / Gel Coat Damage and Repair

Hey Guys....

This is my first post here on Hull Truth. Iíve been lurking for a while and finally joined. I recently acquired a 2008 Hurricane deck boat from my father when he sold his lake house. Overall the boat is in fantastic shape. The boat was kept in a covered boathouse with a lift. Thereís some fiberglass damage to the bow of the boat from landing over the past years. I would like to repair this but after doing a little researching Iím not too sure where to begin. Would a simple gel coat repair kit work well enough to fix these dings? Is this something that is doable by someone with no prior experience or should I seek professional work? Iíve watched a few YouTube videos on this type of repair but all of them were much smaller dings. Any advice, insight, or suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes I have them. Apparently you have to have 10 post prior to adding photos. Thanks.

It is easy to do fiberglass work that is structurally sound. It is hard to make a patch look good. If you want it pretty hire an experienced fiberglass specialist.

If you add a location on your profile, you might get a few good local referrals.

And post a few one or two word replies to 7 more threads and you'll hit the 10 post threshold fast. Then you can post pics.

And Welcome!
