Guys---posting a couple of pics here...hull damage, curious what it would take to fix...full repair? gelcoat? keelguard? not knowing a thing about fiberglass work, i would appreciate advice.

Thats not actually that bad. You can DIY fix that pretty easily Id think. It looks like youre only into the first layer of fiberglass.
I would look into some sort of resin to patch it up.. and start sanding it smooth in the meantime. I repaired a smaller spot that was worse once with just some epoxy and some sanding.

appreciate it..i have no clue when it comes to fiberglass....i was pushing on it, and its still solid. i'll let you know how i make out

Any updates? Sanding and epoxy should take care of that.. maybe even marinetex if they sell it in a big can instead of the little tube..

i got a gelcoat from gelcoat.ca, spread it on, sanded it out, looks fine, but I also got a keelshield and that goes right over it
if you never gelcoated before, pain in the ass to make it look nice

that whole area in the center thats all scuffed up is from beaching it last summer, it was clean before i bought it...im just an idiot i guess...the keelshield covers that whole area, so should be good...some of the marks i was able to buff out rather easily..i'll take picture tomorrow...its a gray stip down the center...my friend nicknamed her "the Skunk"
