    fixing hull chips on bottom

    I noticed a couple chips on the black finish of my RXPX missing on the hull bottom. They are not deep but I would like to know the easiest way to fix them.

    It needs to be filled in with black gel coat, sanded flush and polished to a shine.

    You can get exact match gel from gelcoat international in On Canada for all seadoos. May be over kill for a black bottom though. The standard repair kits will get you close enough for most, even black hardware store epoxy is nearly perfect for black too.. Depends on the final quality vs $ that you want.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll have something to fix this winter.

    You maybe should adjust your bunks also. The damage is most likely from contact with the trailer.

    Yes it may be. I never use the trailer in fact that was the first time. Normally it is kept on a floating jet dock but I had pulled the ski out due to hurricane michael approaching and then noticed those chips.

    It may have been caused by the trailer, and I was in a rush to get everything hauled out.
