    Hull Repair - Help!

    So I am still kind of in shock over the issues that occurred today at the lake, but at the end of the day I am left with this repair from damage done at the boat ramp. What are your thoughts on repairing a hole like this?

    I clean out any loose bits, dont sand or grind it. get brush on gelcote, mix it and fill the gouge and cover with packing tape to help it cure, once cured sand smooth finish with1200 to 1500 grit wet and buff to shine/
    or just brush on some 5 minute epoxy let set and ride on

    the top of the hull on the newer skis are good old fiberglass
    and the older skis were all fiberglass so it can be repaired at most places
    that job can be a diy but it looks like you may need a pro

    Is that a gouge or is the hull cracked all the way through? That will really determine how you proceed with the repair.

    Thank you all for your help! Always appreciated greatly. What do you mean by cracked all the way through? It isn't taking in water anywhere if that's what you mean. It went through the gel coat and. A bit into the fiberglass as well. I was hoping this would be a diy project it at all possible. Why would you recommend taking it to a pro? If there is good reasons I definitely would.

    Fill any fiberglass damage with Bondo Glass, wait 20 min, brush and overfill with gelcoat, let it cure and wetsand to surrounding gelcoat level, some rubbing compound to bring shine out, have a cold beer and admire your work which should be hard to spot.

    Easyyyyy

    THis is a fiberglass hull, not a plastic Spark. I bet the plastic welder would work on the Spark however.
