Gel Coat Repairs

I have a couple of knicks in the boat that are not that deep and you can just make out a little bit of the fibre glass, what would be the best way to repair these and who would i get the necessary supplies from to repair them.

Any advise is gratefully appreciated.

There is a gel coat filler that you can get as a base (white) and they sell different colur base dyes to mix in (or pigments as they call it!)- Black is the easy one as you dont have to mix a number of dyes and spend 2 weeks experimenting trying to get colurs like lilac (in my case).
try looking at this web link.....

Hope it helps

If not, I can have a word with Phil.
BTW the powerhead is now a seperate item to the leg. I will need you to get me a powerhead to sandwich plate gasket and a sandwich plate to midsection gasket. I will get the mounts out at some point and get the solids made, if dad has the material.
