Re: Spraying gelcoat

Bristol,

Before you commit to applying new gelcoat, please take the time to read MaineSail's excellent how-to narrative on restoring an aged/weathered gelcoat surface. You may find that your old gelcoat will respond and come back to a good as new luster.

Start with a small area -- if it can be restored by only sanding/compounding and polishing, then you're gonna save yourself a whole lot of time and expense.
