Degrease hull and ensure scratch is clean and dry. Use the 2-pack filler and mix up. Apply sparingly and use the plastic applicator to remove excess. Once dry, sand back using 2-3 grit levels, ending up with 600 grit. Use 3M wet and dry paper and a little Fairy Liquid to lube.
Rinse off. If you're looking for an invisible repair, try Farcla G3 or Menzerna polish with rotary polisher. Collenite 476 wax is the business for mirror-like-shine.
