View Full Version : Winter Project 4 Hull Scratches

12-04-2008, 10:17 PM
So here are some before after pics, had some scratches in the hull from shore docking the boat, (beer might of played a role in the decision making) I know bad idea wont happen again anyhow... Results are good i will wait tell i get a few more nicks to have gel coat work done. Used the Flex Orbital with Mezerna products. In the first pic it looks like haze but it is the reflection of the sheet i had down

Did you beach on gravel???

Good job.It turned out awesome.

I beached my boat once...never again.
It was on sand and pee gravel.My gel coat guy was abile to buff 98% of it out.

I think it was mud and small rocks, first and last time :)

I remember seeing a thread awhile back about orbital polishers. Is the Flex XC3401 VRG the best product for the money and where is a good place to purchase. Any advice would be appreciated.

Detailersdomain.com is where me and some of my friends shop for detailing products. I have used a few orbitals and i like the Flex tool the best. If you type in DB for cupon code you will get 10% off.

I did find autogeek. Do you feel the flex xc3401 VRG is a ggod product. I want it to do an older boat and truck. I figure if I can get similar results it would be well worth it.

Yes I "LOVE" the flex tool. It is solid adjustable speeds, comes with a few different handles. I am pretty picky about my cars, boats etc... From what i have read it is harder to burn through the paint surfaces vs. the Porter Cable
