I'm considering buying an electric buffer to polish the boat, but I'm unsure what type to buy. Does anyone use an electric buffer, and if so what would you recommend.

I second the dual action Porter Cable. Excellent machine and you'll get great results. Make sure to use correct pad for type of product application.

I had a Makita at the last dealership and it needs to be variable speed. Dual action is nice but it HAS to be variable speed.

Makita BO6040 It is both a circular and an orbital polisher. Works great in circular mode for compounding and is idot broof in the tandom orbit mode for polishing and waxing. Two detailing tools in one. I am very happy with my purchase

Here is a link to the Makita although I was able to find it elsewhere for less money.
