Boat detailing – where do I start?
Surely you’ve asked yourself that question, or else you wouldn’t be researching and reading about the best boat detailing classes in the first place. We have an answer for that question, and it’s at Autogeek's Boat Detailing Class.

Tools? You like tools?
Our one-day boat detailing class provides an in-depth look at boat detailing inside and out. You'll get thorough instructions on how to properly machine sand a boat, remove sanding marks and oxidation with a high speed rotary polisher, machine-apply a wax using a dual action polisher, and more!

We'll go over how to use the Flex 3401 (https://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/redirect-to/?redirect=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marine31.com%2Fbest-boat-buffer.html) for production boat detailing.

You'll get to use the RUPES BigFoot 21 (https://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/redirect-to/?redirect=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marine31.com%2Frupes-lhr-21es-big-foot-polisher.html) for creating a show car finish on black gel-coat boats.

We'll go over machine sanding using the Flex 3401 (https://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/redirect-to/?redirect=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marine31.com%2Fbest-boat-buffer.html) (that's right we're going to machine sand with the Flex 3401) and the Porter Cable 7424XP Polisher (https://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/redirect-to/?redirect=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marine31.com%2Fpoca74hd pl.html).

You'll also learn why it's smarter to machine sand heavily oxidized gel-coat boats versus compound with a rotary buffer.
