    How to fix semi-major chips

    I'm thinking it's time to get these issues in the hull fixed. How would I go about this? I'm looking to fix it and hopefully paint the entire ski black. there are 2 big chucks gone and one deeper scratch. Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Oh and I'm located in D/FW, TX, so if anyone knows any local shops, I'm down for anything. Thanks a lot guys!!

    Thumbs up Repair is a great place to get gel coat especially if you want to match color. I think it was $18 per color for me. Couple hours at most to repair. I had similar damage to both of my skis and the color matched exactly. Easy repair as well. I also repaired the hull on one that had some rock damage. If you are going to paint there may be another way to go about it. Good Luck

    who will do the paint work??
    no reason to color match to the green if you are gonna spray gelcoat the whole ski black!!!
    just get a quart of black gelcoat, find a good paint shop, and get them to patch and spray all at one time.
    patching is alot easier if the patch doesnt have to be invisible, as in your case getting the whole ski resprayed.
    you can do alot of the prep work yourself, aka removing all the extra panels and plastic parts, decals, rubrails etc...
    but for a full scale respray, leave that part to the professionals...

    Is it me or does the website not work? I've tried it a couple times the past 2 days and nothing. Seems like it's a good product. I got some epoxy filler for the keel scratches and the stuff was meant to be used under the waterline. It's a greenish color when mixed but seems to be holding up nicely. Tomorrow I'll sand it down and see if I can make it seamless.
