Gel coat

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am new to this site but what a great place to get info. Has anyone had problems with their gel coat. I have a 2008 VTX that has osmosis. I have been taking the boat out of the water every 3 weeks and cleaning and then waxing it. I will leave it out of the water for at least a week each time. This is the second time I have had an issue with it the first time it was done on warranty. Its in a different spot this time so I am wondering if this is a pattern with the boats.

Nothing on my 05, and it's moored in a slip all summer. But it is not uncommon on these boats. I was told they are the equivalent to rock chips on the hood & fenders of your truck.... not the end of the world, but could get worse & cause problems down the road.

Might be time to get a boat lift.

I had it on my 06 VLX. I had it fixed and it kept recurring in the same area. It didn't affect the boat usage. I didn't worry about it too much.

I haven't seen any on the new boat, and didn't have any on the 01 SSVLSX. All have been used and moored in the same way.
