    Question keel repair

    I have read many posts about hull repairs, and I think I have a good idea how to repair deep scratches and small digs, but the attached photo is my concern...do I try and build it up and reshape? or skim coat and sand it smooth?

    I would be cleaning back that area to sound material reshaping it and then top coating it.

    Instead of editing, just post another pic.

    For some reason you can't edit pics.
