    repair hull damages black/green RXP 04

    Got a deep scrach in my hull. I can now see the glas fiber. I'm wondring if I should use gel coat to repair it or find spraypaint? is it a problem to use gel coat if the hull is painted at the fabric?

    this is the data I got on the color, is it right?!
    Hull
    Black (High Gloss)

    BASF# 95401
    PPG # 9551
    BRP Spraypaint # 293 500 128

    I'm glad for any thing that could help me..

    Use marine tex epoxy to fill the scratch. Sand it down flush. Spray it with some black spray paint and then come back with 600 grit and wet sand the area.

    If you see fiberglass in the hull. . . use a fiber glass filler: KittyHair, BondoGlass, TigerHair, etc., basically any filler that has fibers in it. . . but dont use the plastic filler (reg. bondo). Rough up the area with course grit sandpaper, mix the filler and apply, let dry and sand. Then paint over. I have pics I can take of mine if you want.

    it does have gel coat from the factory, only paint is on the hood. You can not put gel coat over paint, must be gel coat or fiberglass. If you have ready access to some neutral gel coat and some black tint you can make an almost undetectable repair. You can buy a pint online at boatersworld.com for $20 or so + $5 for a tube of tint.

    These guys sell a perfect color matched patch kit.
    You mix it, fill in the hole and cover with wax paper.
    From 2' I do not think you could see the patch, their stuff is a perfect match.

    You have to call and order the patch kit, as they do not have it on the site.

    it's pretty easy to mix your own black and not mess up.
