    What do I need to use Buff Magic and Pro Polish on my boat?

    I have a blue hull (gelcoat) that has a fair amount of oxidation and hazing. I plan on using Buff Magic and Pro Polish and just purchased a circular/rotary polisher from Harbor Freight. The polisher is a 7" model.

    What supplies do I need? Backing plate, wool pad for the Buff Magic but what about for the Pro Polish? Do I apply with a foam pad and remove with a clean foam pad?

    Thanks for the help.

    JK

    I did see those threads Glen and they inspired me to do it myself rather than spend the $500 for the "pros" to do it.

    Just bought the Buff Magic and Pro Polish along with 4 wool pads and 2 gray foam pads for the job.

    I do miss the Bertram, that Awlgrip was so easy to take care of. Traded the offshore fishing scene for Chesapeake Bay boating with the family. That's what marriage and 2 boys will do to you. Bought a 2004 Rinker 312 and we are having a great time in the rivers swimming all day and grilling on the transom!

    a lot less gelcoat - your bridgework was very nice...wool pads will get you there - clean them often...you are doing some serious cutting with them...
