Looks an impressive finish in the blue - nice mirror image!
This boat lark all started with me looking to buy a better kayak!!!
lloks like the arm ache was well worth it.. nice job
What did you use?
Nice job Russ. The windows are looking good too....
Then machined using G3 cutting compound all over with a hard foam pad.
Changed to a soft foam pad for the 3M fine cutting liquid. Finished off with two coats of Starbrite uv protection polish.
Saved £300-400 by DIY.
It's well worth the effort. I always sit back and admire my work after it's done
How deep were your scratches that you had to wet-dry sand it? Thankfully, to date, i've never had to do this. Any pics of the before?
A very unusual place for the fuel filler!
I am thinking off finding a clear plastic protection film like you would have on mobile phone screens. Do you know of a product large enough for protecting small areas on boats?
Yes not easy place to fill up off a high pontoon. One extra thing to consider when buying the next boat.
My fenders did come with socks but after mooring against banks and going through locks they tended to hold onto the grit and scratch even more. So got shot of them.
I'll put up with the filler position until the next boat. Water tank filler is also on the same side towards middle but thats not too much of problem by using a hose.
