    Wow. That's amazing work, Mike.
    Can't wait to hear more about the process.

    Makita Rotary Buffer - For compounding

    DeWALT Rotary Buffer - For compounding

    FLEX 3401 - For machine sanding

    RUPES BigFoot 21, 15 and Duetto - for the finish polishing step

    Griot's Garage 6" DA Polisher - For machine sanding

    Griot's Garage BOSS 21 and 15 - For the finish polishing step


    For compounding and polishing we'll use Marine 31 Captain's One-Step Compound and Polish. Just read my boat detailing book and you'll see WHY we use this to both compound and polish the gel-coat to perfection.

    For sealing the boat I have not decided yet. I want to showcase a coating since coatings will outlast waxes and sealants.


    Then of course tons of other products for all the other areas of the boat we'll address.


    Hi Mike,
    What Coating did you end up using at the class? How did it work out. Our conditions in Havasu are extreme on top of it the lake water is extremely hard here that is very tough on boats.

    We used the Marine 31 Captains Coating

    Marine 31 Captain's Boat Coating with UV50


    The coating applies easy and I noticed this new formula wipes off easier than the previous version. The key is technique and that comes from practice. After application you wait about 40 seconds and then wipe off the high spots.



    I have not gotten to the boat class pictures here yet,


    Pictures: 2017 Marine 31 Boat Detailing Class - 25' Bluewater Center Console - Wetsand, Cut & Buff


    But I will get to them as that's one of the ways we market the class. In other words, pictures showing what you get to do in the class helps others decide to take the class.


    So stay tuned and "subscribe" to the above thread so you'll get an e-mail notification when I add the pictures.
