TG, it's odd. There is gelcoat from the stern forward to where the rail cap turns up to the flat section that continues to the bow. From there, the FG is bare.

I performed an adhesion test on both sections and could tell that there was still enough release agent on the surfaces to compromise the bonding. That was part of the motivation to bore into fresh material along with minimizing the squeeze out.

Please throw me the bowline Fraulein!
