    1995 Waveraider body repair help

    Ever since I bought my 1995 waveraider there has been a poor repair job on the top side of the nose. Looked liked they used fiberglass and no sandpaper. I just bumped the nose of my raider into the bow eye of my other boat and it made a new gouge and cracked open the previous repair. It never leaked before and so I was going to let it go. Now I have to fix it, but I hear different stories of what material the shell is made of. Looks like fiberglass to me, but not sure if it is that or smc. Again they used fiberglass for the previous repair and it held up well. My dealer was unsure of the material over the phone, but said if it was SMC it might be time to scrap it. Any ideas on how to fix this area? I want it to look nice. Heck it's my Raider! Pics attached to help you. Please don't laugh to hard - this was at idle speed... lol.

    re: 1995 Waveraider body repair help

    Okay I looked at the service manual (chpt and looks like a standard fiberglass repair so thats a relief. If ya have any tips let me know, else I will post a pic of my body work. If I don't post a pic that probably means I am out skiing or too ashamed of the results!
