I got a 99 gp800 I going to be doing some work on the hull and deck. I just wanted to know if I can paint it. I know there a gel coat well I think there is. I was going to use marinetex on the hull. I have to replace some fiberglass on the front were the bow is. On the deck it just has some deep scratches. I just Fig if I would do a new paint job since I and all ready touching it up.
Any advice will be great

marine tex is excellent filler for minor filling duty's.. your ski is painted ,not gel coated.. for structure repairs, only use epoxie systems as they are compatible with both smc and fiberglass hulls
run a search on paint/painting and smc...alot of good info will come up

you could get some gel coat color agent from your supply store and mix it into the white part(1st part) of the marine tex, then add the catalyst (2nd part).... you wouldnt need alot of color to get that blue.. id say a mix of blue, black with just a tad of yellow.. it wont be much of any of these to turn that white 'tex' to blue it may darken as it drys so experiment with only a tiny bit.. to be right and not see the scratches you will have to repaint....
