    How to repair rock damage to T3 Hull

    I have some small chunks out of the gelcoat/fiberglass in my T3 hull, but this material looks a little different than the normal fiberglass.
    so im wondering if anyone has experience repairing the T3 hull since it appears to be a different material?

    These new seadoo's use an SMC bottom with a traditional fiberglas (chop) top. To fix SMC, you must use an epoxy type system (West System 105). The only downside to using epoxy, you can't traditionally cover it with gelcoat...but I have done it and works fine if surface has plenty of tooth (40grit). Ideally you use catalyzed paint. Again, never use polyester resin!!!

    However, from the picture you posted, it only appears cosmetic. MarineTex is good (very hard) but only in gray or white if that bothers you...
