    1995 WaveRaider 700(s) Hull repair

    Did a good bit of reading here last night and im a bit confused as what materials to use to fix/patch the hulls on the 2x 1995 WaveRaider's I recently saved.

    from what I've read - the 1995 hulls are fiberglass with polyester resin ?

    Can I use epoxy or does it have to be polyester resin ? I've also read "poly fill short strand resin bondo" ? West system or can I get by with less than the best ?

    Chopped strand matting for the glass cloth ?

    Does this have to get finished with gelcoat or can I use just use white acrylic appliance paint as I've read ?

    im looking for function over form here .. while I'd love to do a full on resto of the hull, thats not in the picture for these as they will see usage only about 6-10 times a year and its important to fix them and have them in the water in only a couple of days.

    Thanks for suggestions and help .. pics of them all cleaned up and running after hours of work last weekend. Also a pic of the worst of the hull sides. Its a hard bolder surface on most of the shorefronts where we are on Lake Champlain

    I would just patch them up with marinetex or 3m 5200 and rock on
