    Buying another ultra...but has hull damage.

    Ok so I am looking at adding another ski to my collection so me and my gf can go riding or a friend with out having to pair up.

    It's another 2010 just like the one I have. I went and checked it out this evening and the owners house and he had it already in the water and ready to ride. I rode it for a good 15 minutes about the last 5 I played pretty good with it. The engine and everything seemed find. Handled great and the top side is clean as a shiny penny. Went back to the gentlemens dock and he said we could pull it out of the water so I could check it out further and said "it has some hull damage that's why the price is cheap". We pulled it out and and the first think I checked out was the engine..very clean, oil was clean, plugs looked good, no trash anywhere inside. Check the propeller all looked good. But the front side of the hull has some wear on it. This is what he was refering to as damage.




    Sorry for the crappy pics but it was dark by the time we got it out of the water.

    How easy of a fix is this.

    BTW its a 2010 ultra 260x with 42 hours on it I can get it for 6k.

    As long as its not structural, a little sanding and paint should clean it up.

    Looks pretty minor to me.

    Yeah it's barely even rubbed off the paint. I the whole underneath has marks, nothing like this, of wear they have got it on and off the doc.

    Can I repaint the bottom of the hull and was it? What should I paint it with.

    Gelcoat! You can get it at your marine store, you can do a cheap repair with a quart of gelcoat and a brush or you can do a pro job with spray gun, wet sand and a final buffing to bring the shine as new. Don't use Normal auto paint on the bottom, it won't last.
