I've got some scratches - some pretty deep, most superficial. My main concern are the seams at the bow and stern, where running the boat up to the shore over the years has scraped against rocks and caused bare wood to show. I am planning on using some fiberglass 4" tape in these spots to repair and reinforce it. After searching the forum I am still a bit confused as to how far to sand down before applying the tape and then epoxy.
My other thought is to re-epoxy the hull, especially where the scratches are.
I'm not super worried about apperance of the hull, since in the water you can't see it and I already repaired a hole I put in it while building the boat! (It fell when I was filling the ends and it was upright - strong wind brought it down on a sawhorse!)
Thanks in advance for the help.
