royalex repair

I have a Novacraft Pal with a gash in it. I thought about filling in with spray urethane, trimming excess and applying a fiberglass repair patch. Better approach? Heck of a boat. Hit a culvert and didn’t breach the inner hull. Thanks, Fishon54.

I had good result

with West Systems G-Flex epoxy. I got mine at West Marine. For the cut and small hole (not all way through) I chose the "thickened" version of G-Flex. It seems to have held up well in what is a rather flexible section of the hull.

I used some Krylon paint to cover the repair area. It holds up good in small gouges, but will rub off on the main surface when you scrape over rocks.

Good luck.
