I have a few little dings to the hulls that do not appear to go through the fiberglass, but only the coating. What is the best material to patch these with? I'd like to color match it (powder blue) if possible, too.

Pulling the boat up and down the beach, and over pebbles, slowly eats away at the "keels" of the hulls. What is the best approach with these?

Thanks!

Paris - do some research on this forum under "repairs" and etc. Small dings might be best repaired with an Evercoat Gel Coat repair kit from West Marine. Check out http://www.westmarine.com. I just got done repairing a couple major dings with the fiberglass repair and the gel coat repair kit. Don't forget your dust masks and beer.
