Where to buy white gel coat?
Jul 12th, 2013 at 9:55am
 
Hey guys,

I have a small nick in my gel coat I want to fill in. Anyone know where I can get some gel coat locally? I checked Academy and they didn't have anything. Any other ideas?

I have resigned myself to always expecting to be wallet raped whenever doing a boat transaction Smiley

Might try Action Marine. I've had good luck finding stuff there.

I have actually bought some stuff from Jamestown Distributors. Seemed to be a little cheaper than the almighty West Marine, and they have a ton of crap as well.

I bought new kill switches from them and they were very reasonable compared to West Marine.

I didn't see a factory match kit for your brand boat but I have used the Spectrum kits with decent results.

Here is a link to a generic white kits on iboats.   They are typically cheaper than west marine but I also have had good results finding the part number I want and searching Amazon as they typically have free shipping with a Prime account

I second what KD said about Spectrum.   Call them and they can help.   I sent them a pc of gelcoat and they matched it for me.    Awesome customer service.

That's cool if they will match, I'll check that out. Would always be good to have some on hand.
