    this was a wellcraft 240 - it didn't have access to the tank - the deck required cutting,and glassing back down...

    that's the reflection - that's what happens when gel coat is mixed with duratec gloss enhancer - it gives a deep shine,almost like paint...

    Pissing matches aside, I like your advice. Also, you could make a killing repairing bathtubs.

    Kreepa, wurst has a good point believe it or not..
    My father was a lifelong boat builder for a living. Several years after retiring (he got lucky and sold his shop in the late 90's), he got bored and wanted to work again, but not hard, just enough to keep his mind busy. Well somehow he got into repairing blisters in spas and hot tubs.. He made a friggin killing, and only worked a couple hours a day at his own pace (disabled vet). When i was younger he would take me to help him, we would gring a couple blisters, fill em, and re paint /match that marbelene color and make $800 a day. And be done.. It was friggin cake ;D

    Cut that is funny. My Fiberglass guy is a life long bath tub builder/repair that now does boat repair. Just the opposite of your dad.

    Hay... I need my toilet refinished. Is that gel coat? Either way,... It would probably be best if it was refinished in a dark color.

    Kreepa, you ever thought about making drop in hatches. It wouldn't be a big money maker but There's always folk wanting to put new hatches in existing boats or hatches in home built boats.
