Using SK and Polishing Product On Fiberglass Boat Trim

Question

I've got a ski boat with black hull trim around the top of the boat hull.  It has 10 years of water staining.  I intend to use the SK with correcting polish and an orange pad.  Then I'll finish it off with white pad/finishing polish.  Is this ok for gel coat?

I did the boat yesterday and all purpose cleaner with some scrubbing helped. Then I did the wheel cleaner as an iron decontamination and it took a lot off in a few spots so I would definitely try this. I also finished everything and got the rest off with correcting polish, it did take about 1 1/2 hours though so buying a product just for removing water lines might not be a bad idea but for the time being correcting polish did the job, it just took a while.

​Looks GREAT Nathan!  :2thumbs: 

 

​Only a couple tips I could offer for the "next time" you may have to do this............. try the Heavy Compound first to cut and remove the waterline crud a little easier, then as a last step product, possibly use Liquid Paint Sealant, as it would protect the surface and help keep it easier to remove in the future.

Yeah I remembered that compounding existed after I had polished for 1 1/2 hours lol. But yeah for sure next time.

 

The owner wanted a wax because he was selling it, so I did a nice coat of buttery wax. :thumbsup:

 

Nice work!!

Thanks! Got some from the inside if you want to see them. Edited by Nathan

Let's see the inside as well. That can be just as much work.
