So the wind pushed me into the dock today😤. Put a couple nice scratches on the front of the hull. Does Yamaha make a touch up paint? Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Spectrum makes a gel coat repair kit . You just need to find the year and model to match your boat . Boat Gel Coat Repair | iBoats. That is if it went into and chipped the gel coat into the fiberglass. For superficial scratches a compound and wax may help with a DA buffer if the scratches are light enough

The scratches are in the gray part of our 2016 fsh 190. Is that gray paint or gel coat? The scratches show white.

Just to chime in on the topic. My 2016 Grey 190 developed swirl scratches that showed white where the dock bumpers rubbed on the paint. I took it in to have the dealer look to make sure the paint was not defective. They buffed and waxed and all but went away. After I go it home, I took a magic eraser to the area and fixed it right up. I'm not saying that will fix your problem, but if the scratch doesn't go beyond the actual gel, you might get lucky. Word of caution, the magic eraser is the same as like 5K grit sandpaper, so make sure to reseal and wax afterward! The magic eraser is also perfect for black transfer marks on the inside and the floor.

Good Luck.
