    Default Best repair for this problem? help plz

    So my hull was sitting for who knows how long just picked this project up , put it in the build thread but was told to post here maybe some better hits and advise , il post some pics but have had input on it being clear coat crack , re gel cracks so i sanded a spot and dont want to go any further than this til i get some input. It looks to have black repaint or gel , not sure, then bottom layer of red, not sure what it is . All seem pretty thin and then i think what i made it to is the glass work. Can i sand til i smooth it out regardless of the small cracking? Use a filler primer block and then go ahead and paint or is it going to be a bit more extensive process?

    In that last picture those are impact stress cracks. That has to be ground down and reglassed BUT I am not an expert.

    Congrats on the new project.
    You got some work ahead of you my friend. Looks like a lot material you need to get rid of first, I use aircraft striper fiberglass striper, autobodytoolmart.com is a good source for this.
    Will not harm the gelcoat. Use in small areas. Then start sanding.80-120-180 I use a DA but if you don't have a ton of time using these you can easily get it wavy, safe way is to block sand it, I have made a lot of blocks out of clear cedar, it's soft but won't flex, sand all the gel off in areas that are going to need new glass. Bottom line is you need to get it back down to the gelcoat to see if it needs glass work?
    This is glass not metal so it's a different ball game, if the hull is polyester fix with polyester, to make a so called bondo from the resin you will be using micro Balloons (Silica powder)mixed with the resin to make it think and super strong.
    What kind of hull? Glass over wood
    Year? Was it stored under a tarp? ( hope not!! )
    Give use more info... Will get ya thru it.
