    Geez, what did you do drag it behind a Hummer?
    You need to locate a gelcoat pro.

    Seek out a professional gelcoat repair guy, also known as "gelkoticus maximus," this is a quiet species—usually found lurking around the back of boat repair shops and marinas. They can often be tempted to bite with a few hundred bucks and a smile.

    P.S. STAY OFF THE BEACH...

    I've had similar damaged repaired like your situation there. Plan on around 900 bucks for a professional gelcoat tech to repair it. You may find a "shade tree" gelcoat guy for less though.

    Who knows, depending on the mood and hunger of the "gelkoticus maximus," probably $200 - $500... but that's only a guess. Sometimes the entire surface comes off in a big sheet, this is called delaminating, usually seen on RXP's. Yours doesn't look that bad from here.

    Dang Dude, beach much?

    My dad used to own a Body Shop and has mad skills and the tools, we repaired a small (like 6"X6" section) of my underneath from beaching it on a rock and it took all day..............It was only SCRATCHED not even all the way through the Fiberglass, through the gelcoat though like yours.

    From the looks of it your ski will definitely require skills that come along with being a PRO. I wish I could recommend a spot but no experience in the Caymans. Just wanted to second Yamma's post from my experience!

    Hopefully a few of the Cayman fella's will chime in here.

    Err..............Looks like others got in while I was typing...........I need to type faster!
