    Gelcoat Putty?

    Has anyone used this gelcoat repair putty stuff. I have a few scratchs and rough spots on the bottom of my hull. How hard is it to get this right? I will have pics up in a cpl.

    Our hulls are painted SMC. No gelcoat

    Deep scratches can be filled with Marine-Tex

    However, Marine-Tex is not for things like Keel repair. If you have lost any significant material you will have to fill it in with fiberglass. For the most part just use the Marine-Tex and paint it.

    Simple Automotive paint is fine but preparation is PARAMOUNT. If you are not going to put the time into the preparation then do not even bother trying to paint it.

    Good Luck
