Whats the best easiest cut and polish process these days?


Recommended Posts

The boats coming out for antifoul, so may as well tackle topsides while I'm at it.

The last time I cut and polished a boat was years ago, is anything that makes the job a little easier these days?

I used to use 3M and a vari speed polisher anything better now?

Last time I just sprayed  waterline stain remover on 2 coats and washed off,not sparkling but see the difference,polishing/buffer machine are ok .Just to be careful can leave like a burn mark if too long/hard on one spot.Yes I found out the hard way and mark still there 2 yrs on.

No shortcuts for the grunt work, last time I did it I used Farecla G4 on a lambswool buffer and Meguiar's boat and RV wax followed occasionally by Meguiar's boat wash. Came up mint

Yep talked to a couple of pros yesterday and Farecla has their vote as well, investigating further.

Blue painted topsides, 2 pot AWLGRIP 2000.  I've been using Grunt Klenashine to prepare.  Very lightly, not to remove all of the blue goodness. 
Then polish with Grunt Supawax.  Use a wool buffer with some success, otherwise resort to polishing off by hand.    Local boat painter provided some guidance a few years back.  
It's always hard work, but super satisfying.
