Fiberglass cracks

Apologies if this has been addressed; I couldn't find any relevant threads.

Is it possible for a well-informed do-it-yourselfer to fix small cracks in the fiberglass? Where should I look for instructions and information?

Thanks.

The very fine cracks known as "crazing" occur quite frequently in older boats, and I'm guessing, in fiberglass trailers. Do a Google/Bing search on "fiberglass crazing" and you'll get all kinds of information on it and how to handle it.

Hi Hanne,

The first question I would ask, is it the FG that is cracked or the gelcoat (the outer surface on our trailers? Totally different repairs.
