Does anyone know what a reasonable price for a good detailing service that includes buff and polish would be? I run an x14 and want to keep that gel coat protected and looking good. Should I have this done yearly? Thanks

What condition is the gel currently in? If it looks good, just keep a good coat of wax on it (probably twice per season depending on sun exposure). Keep the boat out of the sun when practical.
If it does not have the shine it once did, but is not oxidized, a good polish followed by wax will fix that up.
No need to buff every year. That will only shorten then lifespan of the gelcoat.
