Re: Gelcoat cracks in Sabre

Thank you all for your replys. I will keep it all in mind if I proceed with an offer. If I do end up purchasing the boat and decide to repair the cracks myself, I will definitely do the job appropriately including improving the backing, if warranted, veeing out the cracks down to the source, and beveling the screw holes before filling with gelcoat. I'm not sure about the cracks in the textured gelcoat. I understand that it may be possible to get a mold of the imprint that Sabre used for such a repair, but I'm not sure that I would be up for such a job....

As to the history of the boat, it has been in the northeast for it's whole life however I don't know the details of its off season storage. It is currently outside, on the hard, and covered with a Fairclough.
