Decided to pull the windshield off of my boat tonight. Looks soooo much better. Ive got some work to do filling and gel coating the screw holes, but not a big deal. I'll be fixing a couple snaps that pulled out for my cockpit cover anyways.

they make oversize screw snaps so you don't have to fill the hole

I spent my evening working on the boat until it got dark. The gel coat had cracks around where all the old windshield screws were at. I ground out all the cracks with my dremel and filled everything up with some marine tex. Hoping to get back to it this weekend so I can knock it down, wet sand and buff. The weather looks to be decent so I may try and get out again on sunday.

Is the color of the marine text pretty close to the color of your gel coat, that shit is awesome I filled a bunch of holes with it but they all got covered up with my trim tabs

I think it will be pretty close. Supposedly it dries a bit darker, which is good because it was barely brighter white than my boat gel-coat. If its close im not even going to bother gel coating over the stuff.

Your boat would be a good run with my parent's bowrider. In colder weather, I've hit the rev limiter at 67ish on the speedo.

Well, went out for a better video.

I just realized youtube did their stupid stabilization tweak on this video. I disabled it, but it may take a minute to go through.
.

We also did some training with the local air station. Figured you guys might wanna see a quick flyover:

I got a chance to work on the boat for a bit again tonight. I knocked down all the marine-tex i used to fill the screw holes and wet sanded over everything. The color isn't close enough for my liking. Im going to grind it out and fill it with gel coat over the holes. Hoping that turns out to be a closer match in color.

that sucks gel is hard as fuck to match, i dont know if this company is still a company but i used to order touch up gel from spectra coatings, something like that its been a long time since i worked at the marina lol best bet is to find someone that does gel work and can match a gel chip off your boat, i know a guy in morris that bluprints bottoms on big time off shore boats he may even have some velosity gel in the shop, captin nabber's is the name of the shop down by state park
