    Hull Damage by Intake

    I notice when I pulled my ski out of the water after memorial day weekend that i had a few gouges taken out of the hull by the intake grate. The gouges are about the size of a dime and it looks like they may have went down to the fiberglass. It doesn't look like anything too serious and I was thinking I could repair with either gelcoat or marine tex but i didnt know if there was a big difference between the two. I bought the ski used and it looks like the previous owner repaired it once before and it chipped off while I was riding over the weekend. Any opinions would be great. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks. I bought a gelcoat kit this afternoon and finished putting it on about an hour ago. Hopefully it comes out nice and I won't have a problem with the it coming off in the water like it appeared to last time.

    thats an easy fix. I had a couple of those on the bottom of my xp. the gelcoat repair kit will clean it up 100% sand it first lightly then apply it with your finger.

    you can get custom matched color seadoo gelcoat from here, click on gelcoat then the seadoo link and look for your year and color. it's less than $30.00 shipped and it works very nice with a perfect color match.
