Re: First Boat Help
Looks like some fairly major dock rash.. but unlikely to be structural, just unsightly. Repairing this kind of thing so that it's no longer visible is very difficult to do.. colour matching is near impossible with older, faded gelcoat.. esp a strong colour like that. Ultimately the best solution would be to repair/fill the scratches and repaint the boat altogether.
What boat? how big/small?
