It was a few years ago, so if my memory serves me well it was around $600. That price also included a custom application to my trailer as well. The transom and swim platform were a small portion of the total cost, around $150-200. I don't like rock dings and scratches!!

Yes - I have a serious MCOCD issue. When I sold my Prostar 205 a few years ago the buyers thought it was brand new even though it was 8 years old.

They look more like scuffs rather then deep scratches. I personally would not use sand paper on it. I would go with a black foam pad and some semi aggressive compound.

Alright I'm bumping an old thread of mine here. Been hitting it hard trying to get a buddies 2006 X1 back to her former glory. The gunnels of the bow had orange peel like a mofo! so I used a cutting compound (meguiars 91 to be exact) with the hard core cutting pad from auto geek. Fast forward to the swirl remover, then the polish. Orange peel was still there. So, Bud had the bright idea of wet sanding. We've done (in order) 600 grit, 800, 1000,1200,2000. Orange peel is finally gone, but the bad news is I can't get the deep scratches out of the hull from the wet sanding. We even purchased the 3M cutting pad and 3m compound. I've buffed the daylights out of it with the orbital buffer all the way up to the finishing compound and they're still there. So, what's the easiest way to get these moronic scratches out??? Ill grab some pictures later this week for reference, but we are beyond frustrated and ready to get this done!!!

Aric - If you are still seeing the sanding scratches from the rougher grits, you probably need to go back and do more wet sanding. If the 600 grit scratches are showing, start back with the 800. Each time that you change grit, change directions by 90 degrees. This will help you tell if you are getting out the scratches from the previous grit. Here is a link where I did a write up on the materials/methods that I used. There are many types of 3M pads and compounds, so you have to pick the right combination to work well together. I did a lot of research on this because I had general OCD long before I had MCOCD.
