    Do you know anything about fiberglass repair? It's really not hard to fix. But you will need to open up the hull on the inside as well to do the repair. If its anything like mine I had to cut open the top deck below the foam up front, then remove the foam in between , it's about a 10- 12 hour job all said and done if you have already worked with fiberglass and if not I would suggest you take it to someone who does, it's not some thing you want to experiment with if you don't have all the tools and know how!!!

    Do you have any experience with this type of repair... this is not one I would tackle as a first time project. If you feel comfortable doing it, you have a lot of work ahead of you... prep is key to a good repair.. get everything out of your way. I have been doing all my fiberglass repair with 2 part epoxy resin. West System, there are others, but I highly suggest epoxy, over polyester resin. Make sure you get the proper mat, not only do you want the repair to not be obvious from either side of the ski, you want one that will last. Jamestown Distributors is an excellent source for all your supplies, plus they have lots of How To Videos, to help you get an understanding of a proper repair. Also they sell the tools, and not just the supplies.

    I guess I failed to read to part where he described seeking out a place to buy supplies and a name of a product line that is good, and a place to watch videos of how to actually make a repair.
    So sorry my response was just slightly more helpful than your response to my post.

    dude it's all good I never saw a response from the owner of the boat therefore I did not feel the need to give him any instructions or how to videos and he still has not responded to any post, I just noticed that no one had even responded to his post and thought I would ask if he had any experience with glass. But no response so I did not feel the need to go any further to a guy who may not even be looking at his own post! I don't even know if he still has the boat,I mean his first post was back in may!!! No word yet !!!
