ok temperature to do gelcoat repair
My wife and I are proud owners of a 1985 Mac 25. We hope to get on Lake Champlain in the next couple of weeks.
I have about 4 spots of gelcoat to repair 2 gouges and 2 chips. 1 Chip is under the waterline the rest are above. Our gelcoat is white. I have a gelcoat repair kit already. As the boat is an older boat I do not expect the repairs to be invisible, we just want to avoid the areas becoming worse. The substrate seems to be unaffected.
Here is my question. What is the minimum outside temperature for us to do the repairs.? I understand and am comfortable with the steps required, however only one post when I searched mentioned temp. This post seemed to say that temp was not important. Is this true?
Thanks for any tips.
