Furthermore, how much does it cost to gelcoat a boat?
The work is being done in Texas and the rough guess just to repair was $2200 - $2500. I received another rough guess at the cost to re gelcoat the entire boat(repairs excluded) and it was $6000-$8000.
Beside above, can you use Bondo on fiberglass? Fiberglass Bondo is waterproof, extremely strong and can be used for virtually any fiberglass panel. As an initial matter, it must be recognized that there is Bondo for metal and Bondo for fiberglass. Ensure that the Bondo for fiberglass is used.
Also to know is, can fiberglass be repaired?
Fiberglass is rather easy to repair. Fill the crack with a fair amount of fiberglass epoxy resin, using a plastic applicator. Make sure the crack is completely filled. Let the epoxy dry for a day.
How do you fix gelcoat on a boat?
Wet-sand the cured gelcoat with 320-grit wet/dry paper on a soft sanding block. Confining work to the immediate repair area, continue wet-sanding with 600-grit paper until nearly even with surrounding gelcoat. Finish wet-sanding with 1,000-grit paper; then buff out with rubbing compound followed by a coat of wax.
