Gotta like diamond plate in the reflection

Almost looks like she is wearing diamonds............or is it fish scales! OK, one more time with the quick wax just to be sure.

So after three or four years of internal debating...Do it myself or pay someone a fair amount of money to strip the wax, compound off some heavy oxidation all around the boat, polish and then rewax my PS190...I decided that my MCOCD forces my to do the job myself. I also decided to redo my teak platform at the same time. The whole process took me around 40 to 45 hours spread over a couple weekends. I have never detailed anything so completely before, so I went slow and took my time.

I followed the 3M Marine Professional Gelcoat Finishing System process (using all 3M products) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke5kfYz9Ybw

I started by a normal wash, then a second wash using Dawn dish soap to strip the exist wax off. I then taped and covered the boat interior and trailer with 6 Mil heavy-duty clear plastic sheeting.

I then followed the 3M Marine Professional Gelcoat Finishing System process using 3M marine Perfect It rubbing compound, Perfect It ultra fine machine polish, 3M Marine Liquid Wax. Following the process, I also used the 3M Sharpshooter and marine clean & shine wax spray.

I used a Dewalt DWP849X Variable Speed polisher with 3M Superbuff 9" Buffing Pad(s), 3M Perfect-It 8" Ultrafine Foam Polishing Pad(s) and Griot's Garage 6" & 3" Random Orbital Polisher with foam polishing and waxing pad(s).

For the teak swim platform, as usual I followed the Star brite system / products to clean, scrub, brighten, oil and then Tropical Teak Oil Sealer.

It was quite the learning curve, full body exercise and all around great DIY project. The next time I will not let the oxidation get so bad.

Next up is new Vinyl decals all the way around the boat. After 21 years they are showing their age. I real like the second to last photo with the sun and clouds reflecting off of the stern.
