Assuming time/money/opportunity can be suitably aligned, I believe I have a significant amount of gel coat and deeper repair needed. Is there any way to quantify how much area a pint will cover?

Thanks,
Charles

Gelcoat with the wax surface agent (so it will cure in free air) is known as 'topcoat'. From some Internet research, it seems that a pint of topcoat will cover very approximately 12 square feet.

Obviously, any deep and/or structural repair needs to be completed properly using polyester resin or epoxy, and glass cloth. Topcoat is the last step.

If you have alot of surface area to refinish, I'm told that Awlgrip is often chosen. Haven't yet tried it, myself.

Yes, I am aware it's only the top coat. I still have to actually somehow find time to work on the boat, figure out what needs serious work, and what only needs cosmetic touch-up...

Thanks for the response!
