View Full Version : Gelcoat damage - thoughts?

OK. This was my only problem from 10 days on Lake Powell last summer.

After watching some gel coat repair videos, I decided I could tackle this repair myself. But when I went back to look at the damage it seems worse than I remembered. There are a couple of cracks that extend 6-7 inches from the impact site.

Should a novice tackle a repair of this nature?

What would you expect to pay to have this repaired professionally?

That's a 4 hour professional repair minus graphics...

It all depends how MCOCD you are.. I would do this job myself. Get a look at that glass under the impact area in case it needs repair... get an estimate - might be inexpensive enough to have it done..
