    Yamaha Scratch Repairing

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first PWC - 2017 EX Deluxe, and while I love riding, docking was tight this past weekend and unfortunately I scratched the side, some surface and some deeper. What do I use to fix the scratches? I suppose I need those bumpers or something to throw over the side before docking.

    How deep are the most damaged gouges?

    Vinyl sticker. Have some made or find something you like. Forget paint and body repair to costly.

    The good thing about the EX is the hull and upper are SMC and not nano-excell. So you can get deeper gouges fixed more easily. The painted surfaces can be buffed out or do a small "patch" and put a decal over it.
