    Fiberglass showing

    Theres a bit of wear on the hull on our 05 rxp. Up front under the nose it seems the previous owner beached it too much, a lot of the black gel coating is faded and scratched. The thing that concerns me is that there are a few spots,one about the size of your fingernail,and one about 4" long,that the black gel coating is gone. I can see the white,which im assuming is fiberglass. Should i be worried about this, I've heard the glass will absorb water? I can get pics if anyone needs them. Thanks

    Beside the fiberglass absorbing water, the gelcoat will also peel off like a bananna - costing you lost of money to repair. Get the gouges repaired to reduce the change of the gelcoat peeling off... Ron
