Why use fiberglass repair kits and materials?
While some of the minor surface scratches on gelcoat can be easily buffed out, deep scratches must be filled in. If the gelcoat around a scratch is considered to be in a good condition, a repair paste can be used. This is a single application repair that is carried out in two steps. This is done because the filled in area must be wet so to ensure that it’s smooth with the rest of the hull. Once the paste has cured and has been wet sanded, a resin can be applied to create an extra smooth and durable repaired area.
