GELCOAT SPIDERED (Black FX SHO) NEED HELP!!!!
A few weeks ago a friend of mine was going idle speed on another ski and they tboned me very lightly. Pretty much basicly bumped into the side of my ski by the footwell above the rub rail and caused the gelcoat to spider. There is no fiberglass damage.
How should i go about getting this fixed and how much do you think it would cost???
I heard the black gelcoat will never match up. I went to my dealer and he said to go to a local body shop and to get it painted and clearcoated. Is that the right way to do it?
Any advise would help.

Paint will never look right. A good boat repair shop can fix it so you cannot tell the diferance. have no idea what it will cost. There is a repair shop down here that does majic on jellcoat!!

Yamaha doesn't use gelcoat, it's a urethane paint. As long as there's no body damage you'll be fine just having it painted.

Gelcoat is for fiberglass-the Sho's are nano hulls(composite material). You say they are spider cracks..how can that be? Are you sure you didn't splinter your hull and it is making the paint look like it spidered?
