Yamaha hulls later than the mid 90s are painted SMC = Sheet Molded Compound. Basically its like fiberglass, but formed in a pressed mold, so the inside is smooth (which is one way to tell if you have SMC). Repair it with epoxy. Colorite makes the matching paint.

I've used Marine Tex and West Systems with no problems. Don't know about formula 27, but should be fine as long as it is epoxy.
