    Hey I appreciate you taking the time to actually respond to my question, so this is the route that ill go with it then.

    Hereís another stupid question for you: I have the ski on a stand is there a better way to store it so I can work on the bottom of the hull? Letting the ski sit upside down wouldnít be good for it Iíd imagine and Iím trying to avoid pulling the motor.

    I usually tip skis over on the side to do repairs like this, of course you would still need to remove the battery and drain the fuel tank but it puts less stress on the engine mounts and such.

    That hull is SMC with paint, not gel coat. Use the correct materials for the repair.

    Yamaha's are tricky some are gelcoated some are painted I believe Blasters and some Waveraiders are gelcoated and pretty much everthing else is Metton and painted. I believe you correct in that this is a Metton hull, not fiberglass in which case you need epoxy filler, then primer it and paint it.

    Us composites can hook you up with the epoxy and the filler, primer and paint is up to you. I use the 635 thin epoxy, can them opn the phone and they can recommend the proper hardener for your climate, I also use their SM fairing compound, you mix it with the epoxy and spread it on like bondo.

    For paint you want to spray polyurethane paint, it's going to be expensive but it will last if you prep it properly. Interlux perfection, awlgrip, something like that.

    There are a lot cheaper options in polyurethane than awlgrip, Interlux and perfection, those are all really high end paint you would use on a high end boat , I would look into Kirker, shopline by PPG, Nason by Dupont also Summit racing and Eastwood also have single stage polyurethanes, we are talking about a SN Superjet here not a Yacht.
