    Dealing with scratches....arrrggghhh

    So pissed. I fell asleep after a hard day of rough water riding, woke up to find my ultra was not on my lift. It had come off the lift and was being rocked back and forth against my dock cables by the waves Some how hook came off the tow loop (new hook with release purchased today) and the ski was backed off the lift from the chop. Now I have some rash on the black paint and I can't friggin stand it. THis ski was immaculate and I know the risk from racing is that you get bumped, but it hasn't happened on this ski yet. Just so annoyed, I do everything in my power to make sure my stuff stays nice. Trying to decide if it's worth fixing or just suck it up and put some stickers on it. Maybe I should just get some counseling...lol

    That's a bad feeling when that 1 st scratches appear.
    What's worse is if you spend big $$$ fixing it only to scratch it again.
    Your 1st boo boo has happened now suck it up and move on...

    Put hydro turf back there will protect it from happening again.

    I've got so many smallish scratches on my top deck it's driving me nuts. You almost touch that black paint and it scratches.

    I'm in two minds, fix it or get the whole top deck resprayed white.

    My 7 year old STX-R (white top deck) almost looks new in comparison.

    So, who is good with Photoshop and can show me what a 2011 300x would look like with a white top deck (green hood/glovebox though)
