Do you leave the decals on, or do they get chewed up by the process? I want to clean up my boat, but don't want to buy new decals.

That's great work with a circular polisher. Most use the orbital to, "Play it safe" but if you have a steady hand and are familiar with the circular, I feel it provides the best possible shine one can get on severely Oxidized areas.

i can't say enough good things about the makita in the picture above. i initially bought the harbor freight one and ended up buying the makita. worth every penny in the cost difference. the cord on the HF one broke so i just took it back for a refund. the great thing about the makita and probably other nice ones as well is that the speed never changes no matter how much or how little pressure. once you set it, you're done.

i buffed over the decals on my 02 x30. didn't hurt them though i went lightly over them. didn't make any difference to the big side graphics but the smaller "MasterCraft" on the rear sides and the "MasterCraft WakeBoard Edition" logos looked a ton better after buffing them. i used the 3 product kit from Meguires. I also used their foam pads. i was a little disappointed in the cutting pads as they didn't seem to last too long to justify their price.

Brian,

Shined up well. Where you put in at? Growing up my family would boat on the Tchefuncte and Bayou Lacombe.

Hey BrianM, Did you remove the sun pad for buffing or was it off for something else?

Very Nice, I have the same gear. Love that Makita.
I ended up getting a smaller one (not Makita) also variable speed for 3"-4" pads for small detail.

The Teak when done will look like a million bucks.

That's a feature that's very important that few realize, even cordless drills.

My Panasonic commercial series still going since 95, replaced the batteries once.
Also the only ones with electric brake control that doesn't allow chuck/armature to turn with trigger off.
