197 Beach Mark Removal

I am looking at a 05 197 but my concern is the beach marks. It doesn't appear to be through to the fiberglass. Do you think I could buff it out or will it be too much work.

Should be able to get them out if they are just surface scuffs. Little wet sand and buff.
Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.

Just got the chills..

It is a crappy job, but get on your creeper and wet sand first finishing with 1500 grit. Then a fine cut cleaner. Then wax. Been there many times, but for other reasons. Take your time and all will turn out like new!

Certainly fixable like the others suggest. It's quite a job so be sure to use it as leverage to get that price down! Best of luck with the purchase and repair.

haha, you should see the bottom of my boat. Most people on here saw it two years ago when I went to purchase it and everyone told me to sprint in the other direction.
