|Repairs to 125|
I recently purchased an old 125 to have some fun with my children.
On the way home the boat had a rough ride on the trailer and has a small amount of damage behind the centreboard casing on the hull (probably 1’ behind).
The damage has not gone right through, though it does need repairs.
If I want to repair this, what is the best method and can fibreglass be used on that section. I noted where fibreglass has been used in other areas previously.
Also, I’d actually like to paint the boat rather than have the veneer look; what is the recommended procedure for this and paint?

|Fibreglass is fine. (Epoxy resin or epoxy filler gives better adhesion over a longer time, generally). Re painting: see page 14 of this forum ~ April,May,June 2008 - good information there on various options.|
Also, great choice - of boat and family fun philosophy!
