    Bayliner Capri Small hole question.-gctid384495

    I just noticed a very very small hole in the hull of my boat, it looks like just the paint/plastic has come off and you can see the fiber glass, is this something that i should be cocered a bout? could i just fill it with epoxy?

    Probably air bubble was trapped in the mold when boat was being made. Later surface cracked and exposed the defect. I would fill that with the gellcoat repair paste and buff it out. You can get a small tube of gellcoat repair paste in any marine store. If there is dirt/gunk use a small dremel tool to clean the surface with in the hole to ensure proper adhesion. No different than a dentist filling in a cavity ;-)
