bare gelcoat?

erg.

well, I loaned my boat to my father, who neetly parked it on the rocks at the mouth of the harbor. We''ve got her back in the slip now and shes not taking on any water. She''s from the 60''s and built like a tank. I had epoxy applied to the only place there was any glass damage, but the paint has been scraped up pretty bad, and theres one place where the original gelcoat is showing through on the bottom (about 6" square)

so, do I need to haul her and paint her immediatley, or can she sail with gelcoat showing through? I realy dont have the $1500+ to invest right now in painting her, but if it''ll just mess things up and end up costing more later, I can make it happen.

What do I do?

Thanks.

You may get some things growing on the bare spot but that should not result in any permanent damage. Go sailing.
