One of the best photos of the boat sailing. Taken by Pete, who sails and fishes successfully from his Lugger on Coniston.
The photo below is taken in a small bay just south of Peel Island, a perfect place for an anchorage and lunch. To my surprise the depth of water here was 9 metres and I was only about 2 boats lengths from the shore.
I'd read about MagicEzy and to be honest didn't think it would work. So when it arrived, my expectations were low. However, I was impressed and although the cracks did not all totally disappear, their presence was considerably reduced. A quick polish afterwards would probably apply the final finish to the surface. I did follow the instructions carefully and used a pan scrubber to clean the surface before application. In a couple of areas I did repeat the process. I used the cream colour - there 11 to choose from - and this seemed to match the gel coat quite well. However, the cost is around £20 per tube, so not a cheap option. Previously, Honnor Marine in Rochdale, had supplied some gel coat which was a perfect match. I just sent a photo and a few flacks broken off from an edge.
