Re: gel coat repair

go to your local chandlery/west marine...
ask them for a gelcoat repair kit, just have to grind the area out a bit, clean it thoroughly with acetone, match the color, add hardener, mix thoroughly, apply it to the area needed, and fallow instructions on the package... easy peasy...

Re: gel coat repair

I viewed this about 100 times before I started messing with gelcoat repairs. Once you match the color, it really is as easy as it looks.
