    Scratch help!!!!!!!!!!

    Missed my bunks when loading in the rain saturday afternoon. Not horrible but its on the side of the keel about 3 inches long. I wasnt moving very fast at all, engine wasnt running, but it scraped the gel off down to the white/grey of the nano a bit. When is a scratch deep enough to warrant buying the West epoxy kit versus touching up with a ColorRite paint pen?

    Good luck with the scratch fix---keep us updated. This is an example of why I always just center the ski by hand on the trailer and winch it by hand. Much less chance of damaging, and perfectly centered each time. Aluminum boats might be a different story, but fiberglass too easily damaged by almost anything.

    I've been wondering the same thing. So does anyone know what to do when a nano hull scratch is deep enough to expose the rough white fiberglass???? Just color it in with ColorRite or go a step further?

    I'm interested to hear the output of this as well. I treat my hulls terribly. I beach them every ride. Have done it for years with the old fiberglass and it was a complete non issue. Wondering if this new stuff is any diff.

    Keel ended up touching part of the trailer it wasnt supposed to. Not a horrid deep gouge but its scratched. Just curious if I can touch it up with my ColorRite pen or if I have to fill with MarineTex or the West Systems Epoxy.

    Fiberglass? isnt nano just a form of plastic?
