28 Years Old and Still Shines!

On the hard in Key West... 12 hours of hull-rubbin'... Not looking too shabby for a 28 year old!
Went through the Max-Prop, tomorrow, britework... Then a new bottom Monday.
"Retirement" is proving to be a lot of work, but boat time makes it all worthwhile!

Re: 28 Years Old and Still Shines!

Details please...what did you use for products? Prep? Machine? I have a 30 year old looking for a makeover...I purchased a multispeed oscillating buffer but not sure on compounds. I am going to try 3m green compound the. The purple wax.

Thoughts?

I would love the get the shine back!

Re: 28 Years Old and Still Shines!

I'm at 41 years and still feeling pretty good about the freeboard.....



I've used Aquabuff in the past,- even some acrylic floor wax trials many years ago, but I'm using Rejex now.
