2nd. Year!

Hello everyone I just found your site. I just started working on getting my Sabre 28 ready for this year on lake Erie.
Any opinions on hull compounding and buffing?

Aloha J,
I don't have any advice on the hull. Mine isn't finished very well and definitely isn't ready to shine at this point. Sometimes rubbing with Penetrol can restore some luster. It certainly is a lot easier than compound and wax.
Kind Regards,
