Cost for major gel coat repair?

I have been checking out this boat in Arkansas. It has some significant cosmetic issues. These repairs I do not want to try to DIY. Any rough ideas for cost to repair at a fiberglass shop? Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1442451176.051297.jpg

It's doable.

This was my first repair job using an Evercoat gelcoat kit found on Amazon... Youtube has plenty of how to videos...

I just had a side panel on my boat redone bow to stern, about 1 foot high and it was a little over a thousand. They ground it down to the glass, fixed the composite, and then re-gelled it and polished it.

That looks like about a 98-99 Maristar. It must be a pretty good price with that damage. It is not major and probably more cosmetic than anything, but being your first attempt, I would not try it. I had something similar happen on my old boat where the green is damaged, but I was able to repair with the Spectrum gel patch kit, but it was also white and not green, which will be a little more difficult to match. FYI, that MC sticker is impossible to find, unless you get a custom one made. For the port side, it looks like it may have taken a pretty good pop and it probably damaged the glass underneath. While that is a pretty strong area of the deck, it may need to be cut out and reglassed, then gelcoat over that. It's hard to say without seeing it in person though. I am thinking your $1000 estimate is close, maybe a little more.

Looks like it will buff out.

Just kidding carry it to a professional. You won't be able to tell it was ever touched.

I think to fix both of those big spots, all the little ones, and the decal that you are looking at $2,000. The whole boat will probably need a compound and polish to get everything matching.
