View Full Version : Scratched Board (for Remi)

10th April 2010, 10:55 AM
Hi Remi (or anyone who can help),

I underestimated the fragility of my Futura's finish when bringing it home yesterday. Having no grass, or board bag, to put it on when rising it with fresh water I had to put it on the ground.

Now it has some scratches underneath, and about 3 parts where little slits (about 12mm x 0.75mm) where the wood seems to be exposed. Seeing as the board will be chilling for the next month while I persevere to complete my end of year exams, I would like to do a good repair job, as I'm not in a hurry, for when I can sail again.

I have some photos of the issue, however, don't have them online and therefore can't post them in this post. Can you give me an email address, Remi, to which I can send these photos so that you can best advise me on how to proceed.

I'm debating whether epoxy is necessary, or simply a bit of red, water tight, paint...
