Fiberglass repair referral SF Bay

Please don't ask, I am not happy at the moment. I need a guy that can repair fiberglass. Its the transom lip on a Bene First 30. Its about an inch and a half high and about four inches long, crushed.
SF Bay Area. Thanks.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you fastbottoms! I feel a little better now, having a cocktail. I bumped the guy in the slip next to me. We moved to a really tight slip, which in my opinion, is too tight for 34'. A HUGE gust came up and blew us right into him. It was so quick, I had time to slam it in reverse and crank the wheel to get the bow away, but it was too late, crunch! One good thing is that I was compensating for the wind already, it would have been really bad otherwise. Okay, confession over.

don't feel too bad. Stuff happens, then you deal with it. Enjoy the drink, and now you have a new story to tell! (Anyhow, it's only a Bene!)

That's really cold, funny, but cold... evil...

My condolences. A collision at sea and all that. Actually an "allision" since one vessel was made fast to the shore. And yes I learned the meaning of that one in a USCG proceeding against license, fortunately not mine. Look forward to all the details in technicolor on "mistakes I've made" thread.
