Re: sunfish keel repair
For a restoration type of a job, gelcoat is certainly the way to go. As you can tell, running the hull up on the beach (or boat ramp) takes a toll over time. I'm a big fan of unwaxed gelcoat, since you can apply additional coats without having to sand after each one.
Another option you may want to consider is simply painting the naked glass. The only time it's gonna show is when it's on the trailer or when you don't ease the mainsheet or round up in time (which is one of the great/fun things with a Sunfish!).
