    Repairing SMC gouge in black 2008 VX

    I have a repair to make on the bottom of a 2008 VX. The hull is black. It has an 8" long gouge in the SMC that is not very deep but in the middle of the gouge (about 1.5" long), it goes all the way through the SMC. What are you guys using to repair your SMC?

    Epoxy resin and glass. Either mat or chopped fibers would work. You could add some black tint to the mix as well to blend it in.

    West Marine should have it.

    You want to get west systems 407 s for this. Its better then glass. Make sure you clean the surface with acetone, and then clean it again, clean it one more time, and then clean it again before you clean it....seriously you cant clean it enough.. Then apply you mustard like epoxy/resin and 407 paste and then make it as smooth as you can with your applicator. It dries rock freaking hard. in fact, i dont usually even sand them back if its just a tiny spot. But you can true the spot all youd like I just make sure its good and smooth and boom. Let it dry
