The Gel Coat on your vessel is a unique material. More than adding gloss, it also functions as a water barrier to the fiberglass underneath. Especially with the production polyester fiberglass, the gelcoat protects against weakening of the fiberglass laminate from water intrusion. Though smooth and relatively durable, gelcoat, like any finish, is prone to dings and scratches. Extensive spider cracking common on older boats is due to ageing of the gelcoat and stress caused by the flexing of the fibreglass. This can often be heard cracking underfoot.
