gel coat on transom

last summer while at the wakeboard tour at table rock I had a tige tied off the back of my transom on my x2. well I didn't see how the guy tied it up but turns out I have marks where the rope swayed back and forth leaving marks on the black gel coat. I have tried to wax the area and it does not help.

any ideas?

thanks

I'd try some rubbing compound and a wool pad, or something similar. I have some black gel and have done this with success.

thanks for the info. I did use some turtle wax compound I had here at the house with a sponge applicator and it didn't do a whole lot. maybe the wool pad would help.

A high speed buffer with a wool pad will be your best and most effective method. A good gel coat compound is key but the heat generated by the machine in conjunction with the compound delivers the results you would be most pleased with.

Collinite 920 and a wool pad on your buffer.

This is the one I have and it works fine, but just remember to start out slow, then work your way up to speed.
