I have a couple scratches in my gel-coat and would like to get some advise from a pro.

The scratches are on a vertical section of the hull and the gel-coat is perfectly clear make this repair seem difficult to me.

Good news I think ?? is when i pour water in/on the scratches they disappear. So I hope the metal flake is not damaged.

I bought a couple different repair kits but they don't look to be clear ? And a Harbor freight DA polisher and a bunch of pads.

I'm hoping to find someone who has some fiberglass/gel-coat experience and would be interested in pointing me down the right path.

Bob Gibbon is a great guy but I had some work done there I'm not happy with. I might swing by with my ride and see what he has to say.

Thanks in advance

These are not those kinda scratches... I will be repairing gel coat before I get to the polish stage.

I can sand the area, bevel out the scratches, fill in the low spots with clear, clearcoat the area, melt in the edges with a blending solvent, let cure, wet sand with 1200 n 3000 grit, buff, and bingo, like it never happened.
