Ask Dr. Gel – May 2017

Have you ever…

  • Seen a fresh repair turn gray?
  • Noticed a shiny ring around the repair? I call that a “halo”
  • Not been able to polish a repaired area?
  • Observed deep scratches in the repair that you can’t feel? I describe those as “comet tails”
  • Had a repair spot that is dark with tiny little pin holes in it?
  • Have gelcoat plug up your sand paper?
  • Have the color not match? This happens a lot!
  • Seen gelcoat peeling off the boat and actually be able to scrape off with a putty knife?
