Hi any advice on repairing my keel, removed old antifouling to redo and found gellcoat has been rubbed off due to rubbing on sand when on mooring in tidal harbour. Never had to deal with this problem. Gell coat is rubbed off and i can now see fiberglass. The area is on edge of keel at stern of boat about six inches long by 1/2 inch. Do I just need to paint with gellcoat paint and then antifoul, think it will probably just do the same again this year. Is there something I can do to stop this happening. Would add pics but don't know how to do this.
