Benny's Marine in Tracy did a great job on my boat. I put a nice gouge in it and you can't tell it's even been touched now.

Darren, yes.. yesterday I found the great combo is having 9 people in the boat.. front ballast full.. great wake, good laughs, and plenty of rest between sets hahaha

No serious 9 people in the boat plus front ballast was a really nice wake that was really rock solid.. my wife commented yesterday that I had always been at the same height and distance for a while and yesterday was a whole new person riding.. I felt like I was getting alot more pop... I REALLY LOVE THIS BOAT

Where is the scratch located? What color is it? Have you thought about doing it yourself? It really is not that bad of a job so long as your not mixing colors.

Cory, I have never done Gel Coat and without guidance from someone who has done it before I dont want to attempt it.. With that said.. Myself and Allan are going to tackle this sucker this week. Allan has golden hands and doesnt cut corners on anything.. Everything that guy touches is money.. So with that said.. Im hoping to learrn from him..

its just in the white.. in the back corner of the boat right under the rub rail..

I did a bunch of gel coat repair in my V210. When I bought had a Monster Tower on it...that had already been moved once. So when I put a new Tower on...I ended up with 20 holes to repair!

Gel Coat products in Seattle can match. I cut a plug from under one of the front seats..and they matched a batch of white-grey. The Sanger White is not is grey.

After I got the custom gel coat mix (1 PT was $100!!)...I then found even it did not match perfect. It was a tad too dark. So I did a bunch of test batches...mixing pure white with the custom grey until I got a PERFECT match.

Then I used waxed mylar to cover the area after I applied the gel coat. I had a few pros look at my repair...and of the 20 hole...they could only find about a third of them..... I was told that if I had paid a pro to do would have been $1500+...

It is not that hard...but then again...I have done a lot of FG work....

Brant, do you know what combo you had to use to get the grey to match? We ran into the same problem tonite.. the white is not white.. it has grey in it... I will say that CIE Al has golden hands and its 99.9 percent dissapeared.. there was just 2 small pencil mark areas that stand out a teeny bit because the white doesnt match the sanger white exactly

If your still having problems, call Benny@ Bennys Custom Marine in Tracy. That guy is sick at gelcoat and did a lot of repairs for Sanger, I'm sure he will help you over the phone to achieve the mix you need. That guy repaired my jacked up jetski that was hit head on. Let me know if you need the #

I could never get it to match on my own...that is why I had Gel Coat products mix me up a custom batch.

I took a hole saw, and cut a 1" or 1.25" plug from the an area where the front side seats rest. You can only see the hole when a seat is who cares. I sent that plug to GCP...and they made a batch to match...or at least close. It was $110 for a quart. I still have a bunch left..but I doubt the Sanger white for a 2000 year boat is the same as you need.

When I realized that the custom batch was too dark, I bought a pint of pure white Gel Coat from TAP plastics. I then mixed the pure white with the custom grey in a variety of ratios:

I found that 3:2 grey to white gave an absolutely perfect match. I then mixed together a batch at 3:2, and used that for all the repair work.

Did you check your color match in the sun? In the sun...the white mismatch really jumps out...
