If you use the epoxy for the repair (as I would) then be sure to use a conversion coat (like vinylester) prior to laying gel, as it wont adhere as well directly to the epoxy. Im not sure you would want to do the repair in poly though... unless MC builds their hulls with it. I thought they used vinyl, but ICBW.
MIskier was an intern there and he cited vinyl ester as the resin...
