I have to repair a few dings in my 16's hulls. None are very large but I have had to remove down to the inner glass layer. Rather than hunt up some foam I am toying with using gorilla glue to fill in the foam area then glass and gelcoat over that.

Any thoughts?

Ed

I would only use Gorilla Glue for its intended purposes. This is not one of them.

You should check this edition of the Hotline:

"This Old Hobie" shows how to do a blind hole repair.

Thank you...

That looks like something I can handle. :)
