    Does this need repair?

    I was putting the ski on the trailer today and a little cross wind took me wide of the trailer..

    Stupidly I turned the machine off Instead of reverse.. Just grazed the fender of the trailer.. What do y'all think? It's about the size of a nickel... Does it need repair? How much is it going to run me?

    No fibers are showing.. It's down to a layer that almost resembles concrete..

    Agreed on the marine tex. I also never ride up the trailer for this reason. Seen too many people bang stuff up.

    some marine puddy, fill, sand. And use black appliance epoxy in a can...best stuff for painting hulls.

    I picked up the marine tex and a color adder to make it black... I'm trying to not paint the bottom of the hull and not sand anything... Is there any tips?
