Here is an example of a professional GRP repair that I waited 2 months for. Got home after a 20 min tow and here's the result. I left it to the experts as I have no experience of fibreglassing but it seems that I'm not the only one.
After returning the boat I was told not to worry as they would fix it free of charge....WTF!
Now waiting to see result of 2nd attempt.

Ouch, not an easy repair though, it cracked because something is on the move, you can't just Gell over it to hide it, and I'm not saying that's what they done, you could open the crack even further, clean it out, stuff a load of wet matt in there with a scraper and clamp it back down, when it's dry then Gell over it, that's the easy way and it may fail again, the proper way would be to cut all the loose stuff out and start again

The bloke I bought it from was a bit of a DIYer......

That's the last time I trust a man with ginger hair.


I'm sure you'll put it right Biff...
