How do I fix this scratch / gouge in my hull?
I winterized my SeaDoo today, and when I was working on it I decided to get a good look at the hull. Much to my dismay I found this:
I'm pretty sure its been there for awhile, and I know its not taking on any water. However I would like to fix it. The scratch looks a lot worse than it is, the blue coating appears to be chipped off in that area. What can I do to fix this? Thanks guys!

Get a patch kit from Spectrum Color. It's easy and permanent. Gel coat on gel coat is the best way to do these types of repairs.
Sand the damaged area so the patch will adhere. Trowel in the gel paste, keeping the repair as close to the net surface shape as possible. When it's cured, you can sand it smooth and buff it out. Do it right & you'll not be able to tell it was there.

I patch mine with jbweld, sand smooth and paint with black spray paint.

Edit: My color is only available in a quart, and after shipping it would be over $100!! I'm liking the JB weld/spraypaint idea more and more! Although it is on the bottom of the boat, I could just get black and nobody would ever notice...

Spectrum is not the only game in town. You've got all winter to find someone who'll do your color. Spectrum might even do a patch kit if you call them.
Personally, I couldn't bring myself to do a rattle-can job on my ski. I have more respect for it than that.
