Just an FYI, the hull is black, not blue, but that further proves my point about the condition of the gel coat! ;)

I'd rather do something right the first I'll probably take the more thorough approach.

1. Compound w/ heavy-cut oxidation cleaner
2. Polish w/Gloss and Color Restorer (optional, we'll see if it's needed or recommended)
3. Polish w/ Final Step polish
4. Seal/Wax with something....I'll admit, I'm partial to Collonite, but I'm willing to give the Marine 31 Caranuba Wax + Sealant a try.

Should look like a new boat when I'm done with it!


I just did the above 4 steps and took pictures along the process. I need to take care of hot offline issue ASAP and then I'll get to the pictures.

First pass using ONLY Heavy-Cut Oxidation Cleaner, she's looking BLACK again!
