    Minor Hull Repair??

    Today while I was out on the last I had some issues with rocks

    None of the damage penetrated the hull, it just broke off some of the outer white "coating". I can now see the figerglass mesh. None of the spots are bigger than the size of a quarter and most are on the "raised" parts of the bottom.

    My question is, what should I do to fix this? Can I do it myself or should I take it to a dealer/repair place?

    Thanks in advance for all help.

    Marine-tex..... break off any loose chips, mix up some marine-tex and fill the void, let it sit about an hour or so and go back with a wet finger and smooth it all out, wait 24 hours and wet sand with 600 will look great, done several chips in my ultra 150's..

    What if nothing was done? Would this eventually ruin the fiberglass underneath?

    Water will eventually ingress into the fiberglass. I would suggest a good two part epoxy, like west systems, or at least a 30 minute epoxy from your auto parts store or Walmart. Mix up a little, and spatula it on, and then lay masking tape over it to counteract gravity. After it cures, remove the tape, and block sand smooth.
