I thought I opened the wrong thread. This product needs to be in the alt.fetish newsgroup. :eek:

You will need a circular polisher but the two step process is just amazing. The above site is also very informative and educational on gel coats.

Why don't you just trade it in on a Yamaha Three Seater? :banana:

Nice article but how much is advertising I wonder. Could you give some personal accounts? How much time did it take you to do your entire boat, any comments, etc. Thanks.

From my understanding the compound and sealer have been used in the industiral fiberglass industry for decades. This particular company has repackaged it for retail sale in smaller containers.

I bought the entire kit and used it during my winterization process this year. It does take quite a while since it is a two step process and you have to use an high speed polisher. I think I spent about 5hrs doing my 205 and the difference is unbelievable.

From talking with the owner of the company he highly recomends using a fiberglass sealer over a traditional wax. Evidently the synthetic compounds in the sealer are far superior when subjected to the harsh marine enviornment. My major complaint with the carnuba wax I was using is that it would not last more than a few weeks. It seemed like it would just melt off in the heat and water spots would start to stick. He claims his sealant will last 2-4 months in the intense FL sun.

Obviously I have not had a chance to validate his claims on the sealer since my boat has been in the garage. Good or bad I will report my findings next summer if I keep my boat.

I will tell you the compounding product is very good. In the 10 years I have had this boat I have never had to compound the gelcoat. I usually wax it once a month in the summer and I thought the gelcoat looked like new and did not need a compounding. As a result, when I first received the kit I just tried a small area on the side of the boat on the blue gelcoat. The difference blew me away so I took the time to do the rest of the boat.

I will tell you the compound is very different from any automotive compound I have used in the past. It does not feel quite as abrasive and I like the reassurance of knowing it is made specifically for gelcoats. As I understand it, it would be very hard for someone to damage their gelcoat with this product. Also I like the fact that the kit includes everything you will need to complete the job.

Hope it helps.............

Thanks very much. I'm thinking of giving it a try after I get a few nicks and scratches touched up.
