Default Ghosting on boat after removing letters

Ghosting on boat after removing letters



Here's a common issue and that's the ghosting left in the hull after your remove stickers, graphics or lettering.







About the only thing you can do to try to remove the ghosting is to either,

Compound the hull using an aggressive cutting compound with a wool pad on a rotary buffer.

Wet sand the area and then compound out your sanding marks using an aggressive cutting compound and a wool pad on a rotary buffer.


Sad to say, all to often you'll always be able to see the tale-tale sign of ghosting if you know where to look.

Here's the lettering that was on my boat...












Here it is after wetsanding, compounding, polishing and waxing....








Most people would not be able to see th ghosting, because I knew were it was and where to look I could still see a faint ghost or impression in the gel-coatg where the letters once were located.

Here is the after photo after using the Marine 31 system. I know where the old name is so I can always see it but friends are telling me they can't see it.

Great Product team Marine 31...easy to use and works great.

I have been telling everyone here in OH about it.

Thanks for all your help.
