Hi, I have a FRP NSM2. Regarding the gunnels, turn her over, drill/grind out all of the loose bits, then a bit more, then neatenup with say 40 grit s.paper. Use marine filler or polyester resign with some thickener, if needed lay over fibreglass, wet with resign, then sand untill smooth working down the grades of sandpaper, then gel/paint over that. Same for the crack in the hull-drill/grind all loose bits out. Then make thick mixture with resign + thickener. Then lay over fibreglass if required. PLEASE NOTE- THESE ARE ONLY REPAIRS TO GET YOU ON THE WATER, THIS IS NOT HOW A PROFESSIONAL WOULD DO IT. Cheers, Jon

The boat is 3463 and I have been told made by Bagley ? Any further history would be great ?
