    Are Polaris hulls paint or gelcoat?

    I have some nicks, scrapes and whatever on my skis and want to do some repairs to them. Is gel coat the right thing to use or are these hulls painted? I cant really seem to tell.

    Gel Coat.

    I'm sure Bowsniper will see this thread and fill your head with about 10 times more info than you can handle. He's done quite a bit of work re-gelling one of his hulls.

    Yes, the bottom is painted with gelcoat. Do you want just the spots fixed or the whole bottom redone? Glance over the paint sticky and read and look at the pictures. That will give you an idea how much effort is involved. Urogol did his bottom not too long ago on his Pro. Came out real nice.
