Hypalon scratch repair???

A friend tried to help winching my rib onto the trailer at the weekend, now I know when it gets close to the winch handle to release the handle and take another (bite) at it and winch the last few inches with 1/2 turns avoiding any contact between the winch handle and the tubes!! Unfortunately my friend just winched it in fully resulting in the scratches below....
My question to you guys is, is there anything on the market that I can paint on or fill the scratches with other than a repair patch?

I wouldn't put paint anywhere near that! You'll probably find its a lot less obvious with a good clean and finish with one of the many RIB "polishes" out there.

Yep, a good clean and a bit of tube conditioner and that'll look a lot less obvious.

It's just a bit noticeable because it's freshly done.

That Polymarine is Royal (pale) blue. It's brutal on Navy tubes.

I agree with the other guys that the rubs will clean/polish out. There's one nick in the navy outer layer that I'd want to cover - IMO not with a patch but I'd consider a dab of Urethane glue (Aquaseal type) with a smidgin of paint colouriser through it - paint colouriser as in dulux type mixing machine.
