The top of my hull is showing fiberglass. Any suggestion on how to temporarily fix this? Gelcoat, resin or something else? Haven't worked with gelcoat so not sure what to expect. Mainly just worried about water seeping into the hull. My long term plan would be to sand the hulls down and repaint (had delamination in front of pylons that I fixed).

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Get a two part epoxy paint. Gel coat is not a good material for re-painting as it will not properly cure in an oxygen environment. It is a pain.

Use the "Img" ([img])%20button%20and%20then%20a%20URL%20for%20the%20image%20followed%20by%20the%20([/img]) button again. The image has to be hosted on a website somewhere.
