Well, after spending hours on the phone with ProperBoatCare.com, I have decided that I am going to tackle a gel coat restoration process this weekend. My boat is white and has a very faint amount of oxidation above the rub rail. I also got some blue overspray on the back transom portion above the rub rail. Coupled with very minute hairline scratches I have acquired over the years…I decided it was time to give this project a try.

Here is the process I got from ProperBoatCare.com. They seem to be very knowledgeable and willing to take any amount of time needed to help with product and technique.

I am first going to wash and dry the boat and tape off the interior with a thin plastic drop cloth.

To remove the overspray and other contaminants in the gel coat I am going to use a clay bar kit.

Next I am going to use the Gel Coat Labs Fine Cut Polish with a yellow foam pad on my circular polisher.

The next step will be to use the Gel Coat Labs One-step, Gel Coat Micro-polish & Sealant with an orange foam pad on my circular polisher.

Last but not least I will follow up with some Meguiar’s Premium Flagship Marine Wax.
All of these products can be found on properboatcare.com. I will take some before and after pictures and post them on Monday or when the project is completed.

If anyone has any constructive feedback before I get started I would defiantly be appreciative.

What does Gel Coat Labs One-step, Gel Coat Micro-polish & Sealant do? (and dont say polish and seal because isnt that what the Meguires is going to do)

A'm I the only one that dosen't like Meguiars Premium? I have a black hull and I find it streaks? maybe my cheap polisher can't get it warm enough.
