great job that Matt when you did the gel-coat did you cover it to go off or is it a special gel for interest.

i know it stays tacky hence flow coat with wax added just wounded if you had vacuum bagged not easy i know or if you just cut through the tacky bit on to fully cured.
reason i am asking i made a console for the sib but covered with flow coat [ply frame then glassed over ] but i left a mottled finish to match the seat and wear pads on the boat.never had to do a job like that but nice to know good job you could turn her over real pain if not.

cheers

RIBase
For small gel coat repairs I use brown 2" parcel tape to hold the gel in place & keep the air out.

we turned the boat over today
In the end we used the jockey wheel to raise the bow high & tied it off to a roof RSJ & then raised the stern with some slings chained to a front loader.

Lots of repairs to be done
Allready started with Gelcoat filler & after see Matt H post, was thinking of doing the smaller ones with Gelcoat !, until I saw the comments about needing to keep the air out ?
what exactly does this mean please ?? (how do you get around it please ?)

Many Thanks

As PD said. use 2 inch parcel tape. you gotta reform the chines in some cases so lay the tape down exposing the damage and re gel then roll the tape back to stick down.

Fred. I'm no way near an expert on bodywork as I hate doing it. Im sort of suggesting as the amount of scratching and gouging is large, that the whole lot should be done as one complete job otherwise you going to be chasing your backside so to speak.
My damage on mine was minimal as shown and was built up entirely of gelcoat and shaped using packing tape
