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
