The boat for tonight's boat detailing class has arrived...











After my buddy Mike dropped her off I gave her a real good look-over and for a boat built in 2007 this thing is in mint condition except for the normal oxidation which is actually pretty light.

Mike bought this because the original owner kept this boat stored inside their garage since it was purchased new. This has kept the boat out of the sun and in pristine condition.

Mike too has kept the boat stored inside since he's purchased it. Since I'm looking to buy a boat, I told Mike anytime he wants to let her go to let me know.

Since the oxidation isn't that bad and the scum staining isn't that bad, we're not going to use the brand new heavy cut cleaner/wax but instead we're going to follow the sage advice,

"Use the least aggressive product to get the job done"

Instead we're going to use the Marine 31 All-In-One Gel Coat Polish & Wax which is a light cleaner/wax perfect for a boat in this condition.

New Pad Introduction
We are going to test out a brand new pad from Lake Country specifically designed THIN for use with dual action polishers like the Porter Cable, Meguiar's and Griot's Garage dual action polishers.

Thinner pads rotate better than large, thick pads on dual action polishers like the Porter Cable "type" and this gives you more cleaning or abrading power to cut through oxidation.

So I'll let the guy test these pads out and tomorrow I'll post the after pictures...

Here she is after moving her into the garage...







We're going to fix the Monster Sticker...




Here's the new pads and the one-step cleaner/wax we're going to use...









Test Spot
Before everyone gets here I test this pad/product combo out and it works great!









More to come...

My apologies for not making it out. I was leaving my neighborhood to head that way and an older lady ran a stop sign and took my front bumper off. On another note I'm having the body shop shoot the clear thicker so I can remove any orange peel if necessary.
