Re: Transom Gelcoat Cracking Repair
There are gelcoats available that air dry and don't orange peel like in days of old. I had some large areas touched up by a pro on my last boat and they didn't require any more finishing than what was required to polish up the rest of the hull.
Some wet blending with 600 & 800 then liquid polishes with a wheel.
I can't give any specific info about them though - you'll have to talk to some good suppliers or applicators.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
