Re: Fiberglass Bow Tip Repair

the pulpit can be fixed by a welder with stainless welding experence. or you could try to bend it back with it OFF the boat.

You can "glue" the broken piece back in place with epoxy. fill with marine tex.

Glass can be fixed with "kitty hair" or putty you mix up. matching the color of the gelcoat is always difficult most people don't try and use Marine Tex. You could "maybe find alum or stainless tubing with an inside dia of the rail that is damaged, cut it into half round channels. have the welder make up a plate.... and add an anchor roller...
