Should I repair this? With pic
This is actually a pic of the Doo. I was just wondering after what extent you should worry about repairing the gelcote. I try to avoid beaching the ski as much as possible, but the shine still seems to wear off eventually. And there are some scratches from my g/f hitting some rocks. The scratches are in the paint, but not through to the fiberglass. Does anyone repair these? Or is just inevitable.

Nobody??? What extent does a scratch or gouge have to be before you worry about repiring it?

How Deep are they? Can they be buffed (if there just in the paint)
I dont worry about my bottom unless it is into the fiber, except over the winter. Clean it up for the spring.

Can you post a better pic of the scratch? I am having trouble getting the full scope of what you are trying to repair. The pic is just a little unclear.

If it's not thru the gelcoat I wouldn't worry about it.As long as there's gelcoat the matting is protected. If you go to sell it,you might want to try rubbing it out for looks.

I will see if I can get a better pic when my batteries charge. I was taking it upside down so it was hard. It isn't to the fiber, but it is into the gelcote.

I have repaired Corvettes and various boats, using fiberglass products, fill the spots that have slight craders with fliberglass spot putty, wet sand with 220 and then 600 grit. Find the right shade of paint and go for it, go to a good fiberglass store and they will help you.

as long as you dont take in water (judging by the pics im sure you dont)...make it a winter project.
