That makes it look like he is accomplishing something.

Almost. I replaced the wheel cylinders, master, and snaked a new main line (old was rusted through). My wife and I bled the brakes however did not finish. It was Friday 3pm and I said screw it, let's just head up to the lake. My SUV towed it no problem. I need a helper to bleed the brakes since vacuum bleeding and pressure bleeding wasn't working so well.

Here are the parts I bought:

The flare tool that I rented from autozone is a joke. Nearly impossible to get a good flare. I flared a bunch of lines for my chevelle with the mastercool hydraulic tool, which is super nice.

There is an issue that we found over the weekend: hard steering to left under power/plane. This wasn't apparent during water test since we test drove in a narrow canal. PO replaced the steering cable. Lake rules state we have to run CCW, so it is constantly turning left. You need two hands to turn left under power.

It will be a week or 2 before I head up there to winterize, but plan on disconnecting the steering cable to see if the rudder moves freely. My neighbor who owns a 95 PS205 also commented that steering is tighter than his, so at least I have that to go by.

What did you use to get the gelcoat looking like that?

We used the 3m products to remove the oxidation on our 190 but were not able to pull the true shine back out of the gelcoat...

Maybe I need to back track thru this thread a bit...


Boat looks great!

Did you use Finesse? Did you use the write applicator?

Yep...bought the finesse, polishing glaze and wax...and 3 different application pads as well.

The oxidation came off fairly easy...the glaze went on smooth and looked good at first then almost disappeared when we put the wax on...

I know for a fact the wax I used was not really for marine purposes but more for automotive purposes...totally did not last.

We will be re-doing the process with better products before winter...
