    Hull repair advise

    Hi,

    planning to repair my hull. everything is clear about the top deck because it's fiberglass, but have some doubts about bottom part. jet ski is 2010 and maybe someone did such kind of repair and could give some good advise about the materials I should use. maybe there is also something else i should now before I start.

    thanks

    I would use Epoxy resin, it is tougher that regular fiberglass resin,
    it is going to be a lot of work but it is fixable, criss cross your weave patterns on your fiberglass cloth and layer with some mat,

    Naaaahhh Im sure the repair will hold up just fine as long as you use the right stuff. Its really not that hard to do glass work. Best part is that if you mess it up you can cut it out and start all over. Nothing a grinder can't fix.
