For those who don't subscribe to Classic Whaler News, here's an interesting product made by Mini-Craft in Florida ("the official gel-coat supplier for Boston Whaler")
They now have spray on gel coat available in 16 ounce aerosol cans in all colors.
Has anyone given this a try yet? I'm ordering a can to chk it out.

sport15er,

Interesting you say official supplier of BW's gel coats --- just contacted Chuck Bennett of Whaler customer service and Chuck supplied me with Spectrum gel-coat color numbers and a recommendation to order the tint kit and wax additive for some minor repairs on our little Whale --- hummm-- wonder why he didn't even mention Mini-Craft!!

Tom, chk out the website, I was quoting the MiniCraft ppl... who knows? They have a match for all year whalers, just thought it sounded like a great product.
Here's the prices Jack:
$23.95 high gloss
$21.95 buff
$29.95 for the pump
FYI, One thing that bothers me, is they didn't recommend the West system, since the spray gelcoat is a polyester, it won't bond to the epoxy.
Anyone have a thought on this?
ps I wonder if Chuck ever heard of Mini?

Tom, further food for thought, it appears the 'official gel' quote was from Classic Whaler News and not Mini-Craft...
