Your not going to have corrosion problems just because the paint wore off. (Its Aluminum)

If you want it to last it has to be marine paint, or type of auto paint for it to hold up if its on the outside of the boat. You could try rustoleum as it will stop rust, althought aluminum usually doesnt rust but I am not sure how it will hold up in the water.

Don't think I'd call it "rust." The only time aluminum really 'rusts' is when exposed to liquid Mercury. Otherwise, it is just minor oxidation, and it is better at protecting the boat than paint is.

Aluminum is actually a highly reactive metal, with very poor qualities. In fact, most of the properties of aluminum make it virtually unsuitable for marine use. But, what makes it usable is the fact that it begins to oxidize within seconds of being exposed to air. It is this thin layer of aluminum oxide that makes aluminum the wonder metal. The oxide melts at around 3 times the heat that the aluminum does, which is why we have to TIG weld it on AC, and not DC (the AC current breaks the oxide layer up).

You should complain to the seller about the scratches. I had similar scratches on my Tracker when I bought it. I complained about it and they gave me a $100 Basspro gift card, no questions asked.

nothing will match, easyer leaving it a lone, or painting the whole thing.

I don't think that their standard flat OD green jon boat paint is PPG paint like you listed, but I could be wrong.

Absolutely. Tracker hooked me up with a can when I owned my Tracker PT175. The "Electric Blue" color as it was called would have been a real pain to find anywhere else.
