I dropped my hull attempting to get it off the top of my truck! Actually, the bow just landed hard unloading (from about 5 feet). There is no hole but it pushed the glass in along the bottom front by the bow. It popped right back out but the gel coat cracked and you can see all the places that the fiberglass flexed. I can remove the gel coat with my finger exposing the fiberglass webbing underneath. It still has its shape minus the flaky gel coat. I have experience with Epoxy and I know I can get it sailing again but I am afraid I have totaled my 87 race ready hull. Is a repaired painted laser hull legal for racing? Has anybody painted and or repaired hull damage on a Laser? Can I paint goofy stuff on it and still race? It just makes me sick, but at least it wasn’t a 2006 hull!
