    Ok..got my 1st client boat detail tommorrow. I have questions.

    Is ther anything special that I need? I have Meg's UC, Megs UP, Griots "6 DA Polisher, 2 Griots Red Compound pads, 1 orange polish/wax pad for the job. I guess I need a wool pad or 2?

    I've never done a boat...isn't gel coat a lot harder than automotive paint?? Is the boat in really good shape??

    Well I told it was stored for 4 years, fresh water, trailered, lite oxidated and its a 96 Bayliner. I was told its pretty clean though but just wants the hull freshened up some

    This is a good place to start for sure. M67 is a great product that is quite capable of giving great results.
