I am getting ready to repair the nicks, screw holes and bumps on my 1964 Whaler. Does anyone know what would be the best gelcoat repair method and posibly some product names? The inner hull is light blue and I would like it to match. I`ve cut down the existing gelcoat with 1500 wet/dry sandpaper so the finish color is as new. In need of feed, Steve.

SpectrumColor gelcoat paste, in two-ounce jars, factory color pre-mixed and can be adjusted for batching/oxidation variables with tint kit. Punch up spectrum or spectrum color in your browser search engine and go directly to their website, or look in West Marine. I've used it extensively, as well as quarts of standard factory-color gelcoat(not paste) from Spectrum and been completely satisfied with the results.

Browse through the history of this category of the website and you will find numerous threads about gelcoat repair for further reference - good luck-

ditto what Kingfish stated.

www.spectrumcolor.com

easy to deal with and color matchign is usually pretty darn close.

Can't emphasize strongly enough to get the tinting kit.
