I have found a 19 foot 1995 Champion DCX Elite that I am thinking about making an offer on..Really clean boat everything looks good and well kept, front carpet could be replaced in a couple of years or so but still looks good, tandem trailer, 200 XRI Merc...didn't see any electronics. Checked the value on it at NADA for the boat, trailer, and motor and he is about $1k to high on the price but I figure he has done that to be able to negotiate back to its full value to try to get what the book says it's worth. It has one flaw and I was wondering if any of you fiberglass repair shop guys out there could tell me how well this flaw can be fixed. It has a vertical gouge about 3 feet in front of the drivers console on the outside of the boat in the gel coat that goes about an 1/8 inch deep, 1/4 inch wide , and 3/4 inch long. The gelcoat is metal flake black back ground with a blue flake. Can this be repaired to where it looks like new. I'm just real peculiar about my rigs and like them in like new condition even if they are old. As most of you know that helps a lot when you are getting ready to sell to buy that next rig.....This one's going to be my stepping stone to a new rig, if I buy it, in 2 to 3 years.
