    Yep cracks need a hole drilled at the end but they still will need grinding back to eliminate them. I always grind back to glass and then refill with glass and finally skim with body filler.

    If its only cracks in the gel coat then a Dremel with one of the glass (window) etch balls will grind the cracks out down to the glass matt very quickly and easily.
    I then used polyester 'flowcoat' (gelcoat) to fill the cracks back in again and then flatted back.
    For pinholes you can use the dremel and flowcoat (or filler) to get flat.
    Then use Epoxy primer to overcoat as not many primers stick to glass that well.
