    Minor Hull repair.

    I have a few scrapes and gouges in the glass/smc. of my hull.

    Mainly caused by a badly design trailer, i just got my new breakneck trailer today.

    I was thinking of using Pratley Quickset Clear Glue

    this is a two part glue that you mix.

    Product instructions/information:
    http://www.pratley.com/Adhesive%20In...ClearWhite.pdf

    Once its sets it resembels the Gel coat finish. Ive used it in the past for repairing fibreglass car bumpers.

    If anyone has used something else or has any advice, please post it here.

    Ill be doing this mod 2morrow and taking a few photos, this weekend itll get stress tested

    Will this work with smc??? If it's epoxie and not a resin for fiberglass repairs, it should work... Marine Tex works well ,sets hard when mixed properly and can be tinted slightly for a better match when gouges go thru color.

    willing to send anyone who wants to try it some but i think it will work out expensive due to shipping and rates but it is very good and sets in 10 mins and hard as nails....
