  • Gel Coat Repair

    I'm going to repair some chips and holes in various spots on my 84' Mako 238. It's all cosmetic. I've never done any repairs of this nature. Where do I begin? Are there any good references that would go step by step? Thanks

    Its not that tough, just a technique sensitive thing. I'll post detailed instructions tomorrow.

      Instead of me writing a long narrative. You'd be best off by getting one or two of the videos on the link below. I have the Fiberglass Repairs Made Easy set and love it. I learned most of what I know from those 2 videos. They are worth every penny of it! Theres nothing better than actually seeing it all done.

      The best source for gel coat will be Mini-Craft of Florida http://www.minicraft.com You can get Mako gelcoat from them and a tint kit to adjust it to the weathering of your hull. You can also get cabosil from them as well.. You'll need it to thicken the gelcoat to a putty which is shown in detail in the videos.

        Eddie,

        I received the brochures back. My Mako dealer is closed till the 25th. I'm confident that they will have some good tech info for posting.
