Some boat or jetski owners will call for just a minor scratch, a small cosmetic concern; We advise that the labor-intensive gelcoat repair is not needed for that. We suggest repair only when there is damage of some depth or a hole that could result in water entry.
Just like someone who wants cosmetic surgery just because he or she has some natural wrinkling from aging, "extensive repair" is really not needed - just more surface care. And, surface care for a boat is wax. Don't worry about "wax buildup" in Arizona; it melts too quickly in the heat and sun.
Therefore, maintenance can be done with the least expensive wax (e.g., a liquid spray wax); as long as three coats are applied correctly, it should last about three months.
The process We recommend is to apply a coat of wax, let it set for one hour, then take it off. This procedure should be repeated for a total of three times.
Under a microscope, gelcoat looks like a sponge and takes in the wax accordingly. Using a heavy, viscous wax is not necessary and is even discouraging as it is so hard to remove in between applications.
