Fiberglass Repair

Hi- just bought a 2010 13’ Scamp - Has about 15 -20 screw/rivet holes in the shell. Otherwise structurally sound. Should I try to repair those on my own? Have a professional do it? If so, how much do you think it’ll cost- Any recommendations in the San Francisco Bay Area?

If were mine, I would just get some white JB Weld and fill the holes.

LaDonna, Easy fix. Some Bondo Short Strand Fibreglass Filler in the holes. Enough to protrude a bit. Sand flat with 120 or higher grit sand paper, (the higer the number the longer it will take). Repeat till you are happy with how smoth it is, then paint with a matching spray paint. Your trailer looks white, which is easier to match.

On edit: JB Weld would work too.

Do I need to sand the holes before I apply the JB Weld?

Yes, I'd use a 150 grit paper around a small rod, a few strokes in the holes and a light bevel sanding around the openings just to give the epoxy a bit to bite in to. Make sure you fill the hole completely in case it shrinks. If you can tape the back side and overfill just a bit, sand smooth, polish or paint.
