In all fairness the gelcoat wasnt exactly f**ked in the first place..... just needed some TLC

can fill cracks but colour match can be a problem with red!

Anythings repairable but its whether its ecenomically repairable!

A badly battered hull IMO is not, where as with a hull like burtys P20, its worth spending time and money doing the job.
