Ok. Thanks for the advice. Yeh, I definitely want to be on the safe side, I want this thing to last! Apparently gelcoat can damage boards on bigger dings, as I think it consumes the foam inside the board, but in this case clearly all that's happened is the coating has been scratched off to expose the wood.
