Default Repairing plastic boat body cracks.

Hi there,



Long time lurker, first time poster.


I have an R/C boat I screw around with some times. Today, I let my nephew use it, and he ran it into the pool wall head first. It now has a crack in the plastic tip. I was going to buy some flexible fiber glass sheets and just blend them into the tip, but I wanted to know if fiber glass and plastic can mix well. If not, what to do would be great.

Also, what other ways could I fix this, and repaint over it to make the boat look good as new?

Thanks in advance

Hi Lurker,

Welcome to this forum!

A picture of the damage would be nice to be able to make some suggestions.

If the hull is ABS and the damage not too extensive, there are a number of ways to go about it.
I'll wait for some pictures.

Rgards, Jan.
