    How do I fix this?

    Any ideas. Comes from getting beached each weekend. I cut it off and pull it up by hand.

    I ordered the kit for my ski model and year. I think that should be sufficient..... 600 grit sufficient?

    Do you have an idea as how I should do it so I do it properly? I have never done any gel coat work. I ordered the kit from gelcoat.ca. Comes with everything I need.... Any input would be appreciated.....

    the kit comes with decent directions. dont use the platic wrap at the end. just fill and feather close as you can to even keel. its alot of sanding if you have high edges. let dry over night. use a block at first to not mess up good gelcoat.

    the kit comes with plastic wrap that you put on after to help dry... dont use it...the theory is that gelcoat dries on its own and not in ambient air. but with repairs it just makes a mess. use the popsickle stick to get it deep into the fiberglass as you can, then build layers quickly to get to the right depth...a lil higher that surrounding gelcoat. then let it dry, sand down to meet surrounding gelcoat. buff with a powerbuffer and buffing compound, then wax if you want it shiny.

    Do I sand the area before applying the gelcoat?
