Hey Bob,


Yeah we fly a Viking flag here in Chicago too.
And there is nothing like a taste of the Aquavit to chase the brew after a long day on the job if you know what I mean.

I’d want to patch those holes for sure but if they are water tight wait till you ready to refinish the hull.

Thanks,
Terry “Son of Dick” Dickson

Bob,

I’d try to get as much of that old gel coat off as time and patience allows. Other guys with more experience than I have say the best approach for professional results is to take it all off. But I know it’s nearly impossible in all the nooks and crannies around the windshield area and on the sides.

I'm not sure I know that much more than you, Jack, on this computer stuff. :unsure: I know nothing about Facebook since I don't have an account and anytime I've tried to figure it out, I just find it confusing. So, don't know how pics are hosted on Facebook.

I would assume, as Bob points out, that it would be like any other link to the site (i.e. copy the url and paste it into your post).

I'm no expert but a couple years ago we redid the bottom and sides of out Hallett Day Cruiser and we merely repaired the beach gouges in the bottom and sanded everything with 80 grit. Cleaned well and shot the new gel coat then sanded and sanded and sanded then polished and waxed. It really came out beautiful. Not sure why one needs to remove all of the old gel coat.

You do not have to sand off all of the old gel coat, I sanded my deck with 100 grit first and than sprayed the primer, next sanded the primer with 120 grit. Sprayed the thinned down gel-coat, wet-sand the gel-coat with 400 grit and finished with 600 grit, than buffed to a high gloss. You can fill in the cracks, but, they will come back sooner or later. The crackers come from the gel-coat being sprayed to thick, always on the corners and curbs, also some flat surface, the main culprit, un-experience gel-coaters was the main cause.
Just my 2 cents worth.
