    need some help with minor hull repair

    i have a 2002 gp800r that has some scratches gouges in the bottom. i want to fill them in and throw some paint or something over it to protect it just for the summer next year i want to have the whole hull repainted as it is has some spider cracking in the nose and a slight blemish on the side that just drives me nuts.

    so what should i use to fill the scrapes and minor gouges and them to paint over it and protect it?

    is that like a colored filler or do i have to paint over it?

    how is it applied? does the hull have to be turned over?

    Hulls are constructed of SMC and then painted not gelcoated. MarineTex works fine for small gouges etc.. Anything major and you have to use an EPOXY resin.
