I have a 2003 Velocity 260, that suffered some fiberglass damage to the swim platform last season. We originally wanted to replace with a tubular platform, but current budget just won't allow it. So I decided to repair the damage myself. I am not a newbie to fiberglass, but I also do NOT claim to be an expert either. This was my first experience with Gel-Coat though.... So I did all the repair and then re-gelcoated the platform. I didn't want to deal with the overspray and clean up associated with spraying the gelcoat, so I decided to use a foam roller and brush. The finished result is incredible, especially considering I used a brush and roller. Here is a link to the entire repair but I included a couple of AFTER PICS here in the thread. Not too bad for a brush and roller?
