Never used it before. What's the problem with the gel coat? Just dull? scratches? TMCNO1 is the man to talk to.

Yeah, Crimson band on hull and deck is oxidized. Not to bad but a nice shine sure would be nice for the summer until I acquire more funds. Also, I guess im going to get the hair dryer out and take off all jacked up pin striping and attempt to put new on. Yeah that should be interesting....

For the removal, I would use a rubber decal remover that goes into a drill...3M makes a good one. No mess from the glue, and it's quick and easy.

Do a search on here under wax, or restoration. You'll find an endless amount of information on gel coat repair and restoration. You'll probably there's no need to redo the gel coat.

STAY AWAY FROM VERT GLASS!

It chips and peels off after a few weeks and looks worse than before. The beauty of gelcoat is that no matter how bad it gets, you can wetsand, polish and wax to get the shine back. There are several threads on here about the process.

See pics of what?



Wetsanding is a very easy thing to learn. Just start on a small area and remember to take your time. If you are still not comfortable doing it, you can have someone wetsand and polish the boat for about 1/4 the price of re-gelling...

I think he was saying it may not be bad enough to need wet sanding.

Got it! That could be entirely true! Maybe just a little compound and some wax and she would be good to go!
