    Gel coat damage question with pictures

    Ok I know if the damage shows matting from the fiberglass it's a bad thing but at what point do you get alarmed at damaged areas? This is not mine, however it is one that I'm considering buying. This chip is outside of the footboard above the waterline, apparently a dock was the culprit. It appears to be a chip in the gel coat only exposing the filler over the fiberglass. I haven't seen the ski in person as its 3 hours away, hence why I've requested the pics from the seller. What do you guys think?

    Yeap that is nothing, really. Grab some black gelcoat, wipe area with acetone, brush on the gelcoat a bit thicker, wait till it hardens, wet sand, rubbing compound than some wax, good as new.
