Hi guys, just purchased a second hand PA-14 kayak. It has a scuff abrasion damage on hull from what seems to be from kayak trolley wheel. Hull integrity is still sound but scuff area has light visibility from inside. My questions; do i have a potential future problem? And how is the best way to repair it? Thganks invadvance for youd advice.

The plastic is somewhat translucent and more so as it gets thinner. If you can press the area without much deflection it should be OK. There is no repair that is reasonable at this point.

Thank you Matt it is as you say little deflection. Wanted to be sure thanks for confirmation.
