Post by: deepblu on October 09, 2019, 02:10:57 PM
hi guys i bought a 17 ft mono hull she needs minor TLC .there are a few spider cracks in gelcoat i would like to repair. would also like to redo stickers on motor (mecr 90hp 2 stroke) also give the motor proper service . now the question is on gelcoat repair is it something i can attempt doing myself or is there any recomenadtions who can do repairs. also who can i send motor to for proper service. boat dealers are damm expensive for a annual service. :tkx: :tkx:

spider cracks are terrible to repair as they need to be grinded out then fixed cant even hide them with paint but a sticker works well

Look at possibly giving the boat a wrap?????


With the right design it can make old boats look new.


I'm playing with the idea of wrapping mine, i've approached galloping naartjie here in Dbn and they are pretty reasonable with their prices
