    well last year i wet sanded with 800 grit below the rub rail and buffed with presta gel coat then waxed with meguiars flagship. this year i removed the stripe above the rub rail and wet sanded that area then buffed with presta super cut then waxed with meguiars flagship. i had planned on doing quite a bit more but just ran out of time. next year i should have it perfect but still not bad for a 31 year old boat. arm feels like its about to fall off...lol. this year the only thing i did below the rub rail was wash and wax, no buffing

    Thanks. hoping it gets easier each year as i don't let it get back to where it was the year before. hoping to have a new (to me) boat next year though.

    Looks great! I'm surprised you didn't have to cut down to 1500 grit before polishing. Nicely done!

    I love this Presta stuff. If you look close you can see sanding scratches. If I had more time I would have went to 1200 next but not this year. If I still have it next year then I will probably try 1500 (may have to hit it with 1200 first) then Presta Super Cut. Hopefully I will have a newer, bigger boat next year though...lol

    Looks great, nice work!

    As mentioned above cutting down to 1000-1500-2000 grit will lessen the amount of buffing required to get that mirror finish.
