Gel coat repair

Hi

Dropped a fishing weight onto the deck and this is the end result. Not sure if this is easily repairable but would appreciate some comments.

I am in the Southampton area so if you know anyone who could repair this please let me know?

Regards

ekim

Bayliner???

Grind out the loose gel with a dremel or similar. Mix some gel filler and build it it up in a couple of goes. Then wet and dry and polish it with Farecla..

Oh, and remember, the ONLY reason to ever visit Mcdonalds is to pinch a handful of their wooden coffee stirrers. They are ideal for mixing stuff like filler.

Ekim

do it yourself.

Purchase a Plastic Padding gelcoat repair kit and a dremmell cordless polisher and you will have it done in one hour.

best of luck.

Yeah, well, over here, McD's (and most others) now use either those plastic double-tube straw thingies, or little wimpy plastic paddles.

I found crafts shops carry either popsicle sticks or similar sticks for not very much money. Those and a box of paper (not waxed) Dixie cups work quite well for mixing and applying epoxies, activated urethanes, etc.
