    Gel= Hull, all the other parts can be painted with your choice of paint.

    I used this:

    for my base coat, then a few coats of clear.


    whatever you do, dont rattle-can it. . .

    most all automotive clears specify that they are not intended for use below the bond line. If you don't leave your ski in the water for extended periods it will probably be OK, but personally I prefer to use single stage Imron on hulls, base coat/clear coat on hoods, etc.

    Shot my boat with Imron single stage,,,no clear coat. Shines and Imron is very durable paint.
