    Painting a white hull?

    So it's the offseason now and I have two 1995 Yamaha Waverunners. They are in pretty good condition but I'd like to redo all the decals and do a bit of restoration. I found a place to get replica decals but my hulls have some wear and tear that I'd like to fix. It's just a few scratches and blemishes. Is it possible to wet sand and polish this stuff out? Or would I be better off repainting the whole thing? I'm not even sure if these things were made with gelcoat or paint from the factory. Just to clarity, I'm talking about the upper half of the hull. I'm not as concerned with the half under water.

    I've had pretty good luck with wet sanding white hulls, although I've only done 2 Yamaha's vs several Seadoo's.

    those older Yami's tend to be a little off white iirc, so I wet sanded vs trying to match up the color.

    Its time consuming but effective.
    The problem with normal is that it just keeps getting worse...

    I would rather sit than quit...
