Gel coat repair

Recommended Posts

Launched from Indian today to find some cleaner water. On the way back I beached my boat to the left of the ramp bc the dock is away from the shore. Unknown to me, a huge rock was sitting just under the surface about 4’ from the shore. Hit the side of my boat pretty hard. Anyone have recommendations for good repair folks in NWA? I may go back to tin after this one.

Dang, sorry to see that.  There's a business called Arkansas Boat Restoration in Rogers.  479.899.7549.  Haven't used them myself, so can't give a recommendation either way.

Thanks, will check them out. I suggest brining wading shoes and leaving your boat at the dock like you told me to! Saw Wolfe boat works online. If anyone has a review please let me know!

I have used Arkansas boat restoration. They have installed graphs, wet sand and buffed boat, fixed chips put on new keel guard and I just had new bunks put on my trailer. I have been very pleased with all work they have done for me and I think they are reasonable on price.

Do they do actual fiberglass work? I know they are great at detailing and installation but haven’t seen any fiberglass repairs.

Looking at photo, it looks like a solid color, if that's the case it's quite easy to do, lots of videos on youtube. Depending on boat manufacturer, you can order exact color gel from them, Ranger will sell directly to customers I know, Skeeter you gotta go through dealer. But right now,getting exact color from manufacturer could be hard, I know Skeeter plant is shut down. But if you can get the gel, it's pretty simple procedure.
