Question

I have a 35-year-old day sailer - a Flying Scot - which has several dings, scratches, and spider cracks. Nothing structural or serious. I plan to fix these, sand the whole thing smooth, then spray paint with Interlux Brightside: deck, topside and bottom. I have experience with painting and working with wood, but none with fiberglass boats so I am learning. I get mixed recommendations on how to fix the dings. I hear that epoxy resin is terrific for repairs but is hard to sand unless a soft filler is added in which case the repair won't accept paint so that you have to add a resin overcoat, which ruins the blended patch and itself is hard to sand and blend properly (because it is much harder than the surrounding gelcoat). So I could underfill the depression with epoxy and then use this product (gel paste) for the blend except that gelcoat is not supposed to be used over epoxy...but West Marine claims their tests show it is no problem. I need some help here. I'm sure mine is a

I don't know about most DIY'ers, but I have great faith in Evercoat. It sets as quick as you let it by the amount of kicker. I think "not too quick"is better. Experiment to see how quick a sample sets off to make sure you have time to work it. It sands easily and take paint very nicely. I have used it for many applications, in particular to repair pottery and the likes where the "owner" could not find where it was broken. Good Luck John Richmond

Question

The front rubber keel protector came off of my trailer and when I trailered the boat I scraped off about a 9" x 1/2" section of gelcoat on the keel. That area is now exposed fiberglass. Is this the product I should use to repair this?

I assume iti's 1/2" WIDE x 9" long gouge, but how deep is it? I love the product easy to use, tint,sand and is harder than the original gelcoat. Depending on how deep your "wound" is I would use a little extra hardner but this means you will have to work a little faster. Don't worry about neatness as you will be sanding it anyway but because it does "shrink" a bit don't try to smooth it down flush. If you leave it a little above the surface it will probably result in very little sanding, but if it hardens below the surface just hit it with some 150 paper and apply a little more. Good luck and get your trailer fixed.
