    @Rakso ,
    after looking at your pics I would take a orbital sander with 40-60 grit and sand at the damage and at least 2-3 inches around that area, feathering/tapering the sanding as you move outward. Sand till its smooth (40-60 grit smooth) and you dont see any fractures left. With any luck and attention you wont sand all the way thru, shouldn't have to based on the pics. Tape off areas around incase of epoxy runs. Your gonna want to cut some 4-6 oz strips of fiberglass woven sheet , smaller pieces in the middle and stack them in reverse pyramid shape, i.e. small pieces on bottom centered on repair, and overlayed with slightly larger pieces. Should only be a few layers at most. Last layer of glass will fully encompass the sanded area. Mix up the 105/205 and some filler. Then soak the strips of fiberglass with a brush gently. Lay the now wet sheets into place (they will hold location cuz they are already wet) starting with the small pieces and overlaying the larger ones. For each layer use a brush to apply a bit more of the epoxy you mixed up. Make sure no air pockets, can push down with the brush to make sure and fill all crevices. Then let cure. If you do all this correctly your just gonna enter the lengthy part of sanding down to match the original surfaces surrounding this repair.. At worst you may find you have some low spots and will have to add more filler or another small peice of glass sheet, then sand again.

    if it is mostly gelcoat and no strutural cracks. just rough sand it smooth, then mix the epoxy resin and filler to a paste and paint it on their , then sand off.

    It's steril I take Flintstone vitamins.

    The mattress has only been used a couple of times for guests.

    We bought it from ashleys paid almost 900$
    I have it listed on offer up for 200$ but if you want it Oscar I will give it to you for a good price.
    I need it gone lol, I can't have it in the garage for to long I'm getting my garage epoxy in a couple of weeks

    I rode my mt bike to work last friday. Got excercise, saved some gas, and enjoyed the sun. Love daylight savings.
    It also is more enticing because there are mtb trails between my house and office.
