I used this product to repair a few dime sized gouges in the gel coat on my canoe. It's so easy, rough up the surface around the damaged area with sand paper, wipe area with solvent that is in the kit. Squirt resin into the provided cup, add very small amounts of colors to get the right shade. I found one drop of color went a long way. Finding a deep green was one drop of red, 2 drops of blue and one drop of black. The color is a paste so my term "drop" is about the equivalent of a drop. One the color matches add the hardener, mix well and apply with provided squeegee. There is a plastic film in the kit, it's recommended to put it over the patch during the cure cycle. I used the film on the 2 gouges, then noticed I had some serious wear on the keel so with the leftover resin I smoothed a layer over the wear spot. In a previous review someone wrote this product did not dry to a sandable finish and stayed tacky. Where I used the film the product dried great. Where I did not use the film it was still tacky and loaded up my sand paper right away. After educating myself on this I've learned that you have to block out oxygen during the cure time to get the best results. If it is not blocked there is a wax base ingredient in the resin that will surface. This wax is the tacky stuff. All you need to do is wipe down the area with acetone to remove the wax. Easily sandable after that. Sand paper is the only thing I had to purchase besides this kit. Use a high number grit paper(higher the number the smoother it is). I blended the repair in with 220 grit (dry sanding), then went to 600 grit to smooth it( wet sanding). Final was 1600 grit to get the scratches out. I used polishing compound on my repair spot after that and seriously, you cannot even see where a repair was made.
Screw this, I'm opening up a body shop, this is too easy. haha
You have all the time in the world to get the color mixed right. The hardener is the final ingredient to mix in a. Then you have a good 15 minutes of work time.
I recommend this product to anyone that needs to patch a blemish.

Did not dry to a sandable finish! I mixed it the way the instuctions said and it did not harden to a sandable finish. Mixed another batch with more hardner than called for and the same problem. After two days it still is tacky and not sandable. Now I have a big mess!

            Comments about Evercoat Match'N'Patch Large Gelcoat Repair Kit:

            This product is amazing. I gouged the gelcoat chines on the port side of my boat by neglecting to keep an eye out for shallow rocks while I was trolling through a shallow area fishing. There were 3 fairly substantial chips (0.5 inch by 6 inch) taken out of the gelcoat down to the fiberglass. I followed the instructions to apply the resin, including the release film. I let set one hour and then removed the release film. At this point, the resin is still rubbery. I waited 24 hours to completely cure before sanding. At that point, it sands so easily. I started with 100 grit to get it close to the surrounding undamaged area, then 600 grit, finally 1500 grit wet. You would never know any repairs were ever done. Blends in perfectly.

            For the chines, I did find that it was easier to fold the release film in half to the approximate shape of the chine, then put the mixed resin in the groove of the release film, then apply that to the damaged area. Then you can just squeegee out the excess.

            Before I used this product, I was considering paying a repair shop which would have cost hundreds of dollars, if not more. For less than $100, including the kit and sandpaper, the boat looks like new and you cannot see where the boat was damaged. I'm just amazed how easy it is to use.

                      I used this product to repair my gel coat on a 26 ft Doral. Easy to follow instructions and easy to use product. Sanded and buffed to a great shine after the repair was complete. I wish the color chart was more in depth, for example maybe have a color wheel to match to the boat then specific amounts to add of each color to achieve the desired color, but my color match was close enough, maybe my wife was right and I'm a perfectionist. Otherwise great product, just make sure that you thoroughly mix the hardener into the resin before applying. Would definitely recommend.

                                Used to repair a few chips and small scratches thru the gel coat. The black and red were good matches so I did not have to custom match by mixing colors.
