I have a 2000 GLS with the light toggle switch mounter below the wheel and to the right. There is a short panel of fiberglass at a 45 degree angle that is part of the console.

Recently, what appeared to be a small scratch appeared. When I used my finger, it developed into a hole about the size of a quarter. How do I repair?

Looked at other threads, but cannot access the one on repairs.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Sounds like an almost new boat. I would take it to your dealer and let them look at it. If they refuse to do anything about it, scream bloody murder.

I just bought it USED from a dealer. On closer inspection and looking from the back side, it did not break the fiberglass, just the gel coat.

I would still take it back to the dealer and make them do the repair.

Just an idea:
If all else fails and it's not too close to an edge, drill it out and install a 12 volt "Cigarette lighter" socket so you can run accessories like a Q-beam (pretty handy little suckers at night). It'll look intentional.

Problem with gell coat repairs is they are rarely a prefect color match
