Thanks! I am excited! Didn't get any more photos, but I am sure it is probably all done now. Maybe they will send something tomorrow....

And good luck!! As commented below, be careful. Luckily, gelcoat is much harder to mess up than something like a car finish..... You should be all set. I am assuming that you mostly just have scuff marks, and mild scratches from boards and stuff. It should be a cakewalk. Just take your time, dont remove more material than needed, feather the repair, and dont overheat the surface with the buffer.

And remember, go with the least aggressive approach first. You can't magically un-sand the gel coat once it's gone.
