Re: Hanse Yachts

Hi Paulo
I believe the Gelcoat on my Hanse 470e is polyester as I have repaired chips with normal polyester gelcoat, which works fine. If the Gelcoat were epoxy the polyester repairs wouldn't adhere, since you can epoxy over polyester but not the other way around.
Anyway... four and a half years after launching and the white gelcoat still looks like new in the harsh Australian sun!
Cheers
George
