Last year I polished and waxed my 1984 Nonsuch 30 with quite good results, reasonably assuming that it was gelcoat
. I didn’t give it much thought until I found a reference in the “ships files” to her having been “Awlgripped” in 2001. On closer inspection
I'm pretty sure I’m dealing with paint
but since I got away with the compounding last year I’m skeptical that it is actually Awlgrip and thinking it is more likely Awlcraft.
My question is does anyone know of a way to tell this long after the fact which coating it is? It will make a difference to how I proceed with maintenance
