Here are a couple of pics of the repair - area repaired (gelcoat & glass ground out & re glassed & filled / faired is just below the port side fender.

Repaint was done 2 wks ago and I plan to wait 1-2 mos before buffing what little spray fog there is - if you get close repair area is barely noticeable but that's due to my lest than perfect body work... I am extremely pleased w/ the paint match. I had a buddy w/ a good spray gun do it for me but in a pinch I'd try a PreVal aerosol sprayer and I think w/ a little practice one could do a fair job. That's what I used ahead of time for priming to be ready the day he showed up. I did have the benefit of fine sanding after priming.

Choice of break point helps hide the repaint - I ran from waterline up to the contour change about 10" below the rubrail so match lines are vertical in the area roughly at ends of the fender.

Any follow up questions let me know
