First time MC owner and really enjoy the forum . I have recently purchased
A 2002 x30 and wanted to change the color from the rub rail to the waterline .

Getting a vinyl wrap for the part you want to color change is probably going to be the best option.

I agree. It isn't a long term fix, but it will be much less of an undertaking.

look into this for color change

as the gel coat is strong its main function was as a mold release in the factory. I would look into having it painted with AWLGRIP paint. They have a vast amount of colors from standard to metallic. if you are going to be paying to have it done you might as well do it right the first time rather than giving it a temp job.

There's a guy in east TN that does this the 'right' way aside from painting. He'll sand the boat down to the laminated surface and respray it with gel whatever color you like. He's good at it. I saw a boat he did two summers ago and it looked like factory work. He worked at MC for quite a few years, so glass and gel is his trade.

That could be the ticket. Can't beat new gel when it's done right.
