    Gel Coats

    Can you suggest a brand of gel?

    PVA?

    I take it you are saying that gel coating the little boat is preferable to a paint job?

    Thanks for advice.

    pva green slime in a bottle, just do a search on the net and find the best price, same with gel coat.

    Don't buy any tint and try to turn resin into gel, it's just not the same.
