Re: Why paint instead of gelcoat?
Wow, a lot of opinons on both sides, no question a new layer of gelcoat will be better, but I used to work for a plastics, shop, I have gallons of resin in my garage that I regularly fabricate fiberglass objects with, as well as boat repairs....
a few weeks ago I decided to refinish my boat.
I gel coated the gouges, sanded flat, then painted the hull with a marine enamel, I did the same to the deck mixed with some nonskid. It only took a weekend, and it came out great.
