Well, the boat was for sale but i didn't want to raise interest in it & give the seller an advantage !
Jeff was right, in real life its had a really hard life !
The hull is battered, numerous dents & holes in the chines, (ill try to get some photo's up but the boat is 30 miles away at the moment) A Nice 3 to 4ft long deep gouge, one tube that that goes down due to a poor repair (patch has come of but the glue used is rock hard !!)
The Anode is missing on the engine, prop again is battered, Skeg has been snapped ! & battery box under seat loose, floating about !
None of this is really surprising given that on the river trial, On the launch the guy just stuck it in reverse to back it off the trailer when the motor was on full lock swinging the hull into all the trailer roller posts etc !
(loading it up again wasn't much better coming in diagonally across the trailer!)
So im after lots of advice please
On repairing & tidying up the Hull, getting the chines looking Tidy again !
Does it matter on the type / make of fibre glass to use ?
On the gouges & knocks can I use a filler & if so what types is the best ??,
