    Patching a small Chip in the hull

    I have a black hull and it has a chip on it where you can see the white layer underneath. Anyone have any recommendations on what to use to seal it / fill it in. It's only about 3/4 of an inch in size. Thanks!

    I've used a product called "Sun Cure". It comes in a small tube and designed for fiberglass surfboard chips. Not sure if it comes in different colors, it hardens clear, and i've used it on the bottom of my hull to patch rock scrapes. It works well, and is cheap.

    This is something along the lines of what I am looking for. Not sure if it's the answer for me or not. But I will look into it! Thanks!

    If the hull is painted black,(not gelcoat) then yes you will sand the gelcoat repair and you will sand through your black paint to white.
    If your black is gelcoat then use the repair kit.

    Glenn, for small chips and scratches use white marine tex (not the grey). It can be tinted black. A small box of the marine tex mix is $20 at any local boat place. Used it on several GPR's to 90 degree the trailing edges of the hull..

    No, it is GEL COATED on the "black" bottom hull on ALL recent kawi skis.
    The top deck (above bumper line) is painted though.
