Glassing repair advice NOR

 Looking for recommendations from people on good glass repairers NOR. I've just had my boat back from a motor service and there's three big dings on one of the strakes. It's beyond me how the damage has occurred, the chips are absolutely fresh and I'm convinced it's not me- as it's at the stern only 6inches in from the transom, and on the side of the strake so not been done loading/unloading, haven't been anywhere less than marina depth and tie down straps are always tight. Whilst I haven't spoken to the service yard yet and will do so early next week, I'm struggling with how they could have done it. Boat doesn't need lifting for an outboard service surely?

anyway recommendations for repairers welcomed.

 Trailer in too deep and hit the metal roller arms, the spacing looks very similar.

gelcoat chips like that are fairly easy to repair on a diy basis, have a quick look on you tube.

 Like Marineboy says, if it is just the gelcoat chipped  it could be acceptable to DIY, using a small tube  of something like Magic Ezy.
