    Fix it up correctly - repair the gel.

      Yip, fix it up. Wrap is just a band aid on a compound fracture. Won’t last, way more difficult to maintain the wrap than gel.
      Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.

        I appreciate the feedback... that's how I feel, but it is always nice to have a little reassurance when opening the wallet that wide!!!

          I agree with the others. Fix the gel and you will have a great looking boat for years!

            Dang, bummer man. +1 on the gel repair. Better to do it now than have to buy a new wrap a few years from now or take a hit on resale.

              Every time I see a wrap I expect this or worse, typically worse. The crap repairs were probably done just to get a smooth surface for the wrap to go over. As others stated I'm in the "repair it right" camp as well.

                  Id just keep as is for now drive make sure rest of the boat is tip top before sinking that kind of money in it. maybe interior next then outside. Last time I has a quote for a 20ft wrap it was 2,000 and Im pretty sure it was a 5 year no fade or peel warranty.

                      But first, go punch the previous owner square in the nuts! I know it was a good deal, but who's brainiac idea was it to sand a big splotch around the scratches. Minor gel coat repair is super easy and sanding a big area before the repair ain't how to do it.

                      All they did was make the repairs more difficult.

                        I wish I had photos to give an update... but nothing to show as of yet. The previous owner not only put a wrap over the Blue gel they painted the bottom of the boat. It’s a work in progress at Top Performance Marine. They are working on the Gel coat to restore it back to original colors while I’m working extra to pay for the repairs.

                        The interior colors are selected and will be put in sometime in the next few months.

                        I don’t expect to see the boat until the end of March or first of April.

                        Did you end up finding a boat wakesurf?

                          Just got a picture...

                          Not only does it look different... but it’s weird seeing it airborne!

                              Sorry for the delayed response, I struck out on a 1999 Maristar 230 a while back. Too far gone and asking too much. I’ve looked into another few but honestly I’m just periodically checking around now. Not a lot for sale but keeping my eyes peeled.

                              I can’t wait to see yours all fixed up. I talked to you guy over there about that he Maristar a while back. Super friendly and responsive.

                                Just got a few updated pics of the interior and the gel coat restoration going on...

                                Makes me even more excited for summer!
