Hey all. So I've been back to work on the boat and am working on the gel coat today. The back is one of the worst areas and I can't seem to get out some dark spots. I wet sanded with 800 and then 1000 and then applied some rubbing compound. Most of it looks great but there are dark spots where the deck sits. Do you think those are permanent? The red brightened up great in most areas.

For some reason I was thinking some of that would still show, maybe not. I'm just being anal. What about grey in the pic below? It's kinda hard to see but waterline and below is all blotchy. Once again, just being anal since it will be underwater, but if anyone has any ideas to clean it up even more that would be great! Here's one side done up to the point of rubbing compound.

I'd rub that grey out with 2000 grit paper, then compound the paper marks (3M Super), then polish the compound marks (3M extra cut). A certain amount of work but It will bring it back. All part of it....

OK, thanks. I was just scared that I was going to overdue the sanding.

Good looking machine. Seems you're right on track.

I'd leave the transom alone with what you have now (the dark spots on the flake). The platform will cover that but so what if it doesn't cover all of it? Thing about flake is that you can only sand so deep, then the flake comes to surface....
