Fiberglass Repair, Gelcoat, Color Matching and Dummies

I know some people on here (like Raindog) have seen this fellas work, but I wanted to be sure other people saw it ...

I need to do some fiberglass work (first time) and Andy with Boatworks Today has some great videos. Very technically detailed but lighthearted, to me an excellent example of the internet helping people help themselves. Some of the best technical homemade videos I've seen.

There is a 7-part video that takes a fiberglass repair from start to (very nice) finish.

Here is the funny video where he makes the fiberglass that will be repaired:

Also another video that shows most of the common fiberglass problems and how to fix them. You have to hunt for the

Fiberglass Overview And Awlgrip Non-skid : Boatworks Today

The guy is a natural at explaining stuff. There are a lot of experts on this forum. And they will likely disagree on some of the information, but I challenge them to make a video that does a better job of explaining fiberglass work to a newbie (like me).

Anyway, I hope it helps someone, and if anyone knows of better resources, I'd appreciate knowing about them.
