    Lightbulb best way to fix....

    2011 seadoo rxt260is

    crazing in paint along left hand rear side of hull

    sand back until fibreglass and respray with marine paint with extra flex agent? (or just sand/spray entire hull)

    How long does paint last on jet skis anyway if you use it every weekend?

    I WILL ATTACH PHOTOS FOR CLARITY SOON.

    Why would you use paint if one of the best thing about a seadoo is they use gelcoat. I don't care how faded or rough gelcoat is, all that is required is wetsand, machine compound then polish. Will come out better than new.

    If you have damage, just re-apply (matching) gelcoat.

    Paint will never be as durable as gelcoat.

    isn't gelcoat just a clear coat of paint?

    the cracks look to go very deep into the getlcoat/paint/primer and down to the fibreglass?

    Gelcoat is certainly not paint. You have cracks on ski? Post a picture, it will help in pointing you in the proper direction.

    Are you original owner?
    Did ski get into an accident?

    I'm starting to think you are over your head in what needs to be done to address this properly.

    No, gelcoat isn't just clearcoat. If there is no fiberglass damage than all you need to do is buy a small gelcoat repair kit. Look online and you can find videos and articles on how to do gelcoat repair.
