gel coat cracks

probably mentioned this before.....but my 2004X9 developed a crack in the rear Q during the summer..it was just above the rub-rail on the drivers side........i sent it in for its service 2 weeks ago and had this mended.....the dealer rang me last week to tell me they had repaired it, but it had cracked again whilst on the trailer...(strange)..the gelcoat was not a perfect match either,and he said i would not be happy with it.......he is trying again in jan when he said he should have a better match....To all you MC dealers out there
1.why would it crack on the trailer????
2.how many variations of white do you have
3.if it cracks again ,would you push for a new hull
4.are you out of money if i did???

i look fwd to your responses

I've heard that the hardest color to match is white.

I'm very curious why it would crack on the trailer also.... Unless it's from too much hardener?

My boat has been laid up for nearly 4 months getting fixed, I saw it last week and I could not tell where the repair ended, the guy did an excellent job with the gel coat.

I know the dealer had to order it direct from the factory and it took longer to ship because it's considered HAZMAT. Did your guy use OEM gel coat or some other brand?

There was someone on the board who got a new hull poured due to the problem you're having, can't remember the exact story hopefully Doug or TT Admin will pipe in.
