Small cosmetic oyster scratches

Hello,

I am new to the Forum and am hoping someone can help me find a good cosmetic fix to
invisably repair some shallow scratches to my RIB tube caused by a brush with Oysters?

There is only a couple and they aren't deep.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Depending on the colour there are a variety of gelcoat filling products out there that combined with 1200 grit wet and dry and some polishing compound will leave you with a perfect finish.

That's for the hull/deck. The repair in question is for the sponsons/tubes. Probably not much can be done unless you apply a wear patch over the top, depending where it is.

Ahh Sorry, in that case assuming the tubes are hypalon then I recently got rid of some scuff like marks on my tubes using some of the Hypalon glue thinners then treated the tubes with 303 to bring the shine back.
