I got on a T-Pole at Fork and gouged a hole in my Skeeter, I decided to with the Gator Hull instead of just getting the hole repaired. Lake Fork Fiberglass did a great job..
Thanks Mike.

Had my Skeeter done a couple years ago and love it! It's already saved me lost time and money spent on hull repairs.

The boat I bought has one and the previous owner said it lost several mph. But I also found wet foam in my boat, so I hope these coatings are really waterproof and the water didnít soak in through the coating.

But it sure is nice now when I drag it up over a rock/gravel and thereís no damage to the bottom.

Not bashing anyone's "gator hull" but I think some fiberglass shops version of a gator hull is different from others.

I saw a gator hull on one of my friend's Legends and it looks just like the Rhino Liner that is sprayed in the bed of a pickup truck. It cost him about 5 mph on top end due to the rough texture of the new surface.

Is that what yours looks like?

This is how mine looks, bumpy. I really wish it was a gorilla hull. Mine was done at lake fork fiberglass, so itís a gator.

I thought they both had a textured looking surface like line-x?

I think the gorilla is a bit more golf ball like because of the mesh they use. I havenít seen one of theirs in person, just what I was told. Both are way better than gelcoat!

And have lifetime warranties

Been running a Gorilla Hull for 3 yrs now. Great product. I might have lost 1mph. But have never touched the JP to dial it in. Holeshot is the same and has as much or more lift. Lifetime warranty and they told me to bring it back anytime if it needed tweaking for more performance.
It has a softer dimple feel and finish.
