    I did see that but you have to sift through 15 pages of BS. I went through the first five pages and saw some info about gel coat repair..
    Im talking about doing an entire ski.

    Is there any place local that does it? Any idea what it would cost? I really dont know anything about it.. thats why I posted up.

    James i just had the whole bottom of my RXT redone and it cost about $3,000 bucks total, with getting enough gel coat to do the top and bottom and having them sand and coat the hull.

    what is the approx cost?

    It looks as if it is applied just like paint but it has a hardening agent in it that makes it cure like it does.

    I think Otto might know someone in NY. I have to go get something from him in a few minutes. I'll try and remember to ask him.

    i called around to have mine done, most marinas will do it, or they can refer you...if you are doing the whole hull, i would advise not to do it yourself, i did a few touch up spots and its a PITA to match and look good

    BUT if you have patience, unlike me, you can probably get it done yourself with the right amount of time and gelcoat.
