    Scratch through gelcoat

    Just wondering if there is anything to fix a scratch on the bottom of a ski that went just past the gelcoat. Should I be concerned? It is about 5 inches long. Just dont want it to start pealing.

    Here are a couple of pics. The other marks on the bottom are from the previous owner putting it up on the beach, I now use an anchor. The bottom doesnt really look as bad as the pictures make it out to be, the black just shows everything.

    Did you find it? It would have been on page one or two. You should be able to fill that in with the patch kit and then sand it smooth

    Yup, I found it http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...hlight=gelcoat but your picture is a bag of some sort. Thanks, this may point me to something I can use. I think in the future I will have the bottom refinished or cleaned up. Someone local is really good and looks better than new when done.

    yeah I deleted the pic. I had a different type of scrape. Mine was on the topside and it was just a little scuff. What you have is not bad at all. no one will ever see it. Just fill it in, sand it, and forget about it.
