When I bought my Revenge last summer it had a crack at the port rear-end. During the winter I removed all the tape covering this crack and now I like to repair it.

There are 3 photo's of the damage
1. From above (this looks worst)
2. From the side
3. From below.

I hope the photo's are clear enough...

What is the best way to repair this kind of damage?
Thanks for any help

Hans,

That looks to be a simple repair. The first thing you need to do is pull the rub rail insert and receiver track off of there and really see what you got. I suspect some gel coat patch paste will repair the damage to the fiberglass.

A new rub rail or at least a new section of receiver track with a new insert will make that corner look like new.

For some tips on fiberglass repair and gel coat patches see:

I do not now if you can get Spectrum to ship a Gel Coat Patch Paste Kit to the Netherlands but if not let me know and I will see what I can do.
