Here is a short video of the sailboat fiberglass repair we made. When we bought the Vanguard 15 to add to the training fleet, I knew there was a small soft spot on the deck but was confident about fixing the fiberglass. As you will see in the video, the soft spot turned out to be a bit bigger than expected, but the blind patch method worked well. The method I used was in the sunfish manual for fixing holes in their hulls.
Here is another blog post about doing this kind of repair, Sunfish repair blog
If you need your gear repaired we can do it, or refer you to the correct place to get you back on the water.
