    Pictures: 2018 Boat Detailing Class at Autogeek with Mike Phillips


    This thread is for the before and after pictures for our 2018 Boat Detailing Class.



    Here's the 21' Trophy
















    Continued....

    Dialing in my Test Spot for the Saturday/Sunday Boat Detailing Class.

    This is for the 21' Trophy - probably the WORST condition boat we've ever used for a class.



    This is the new SCANGRIP Colormatch light - lighting up the side of the hull







    That's ugly....





    Final Results









    This is going to be a great class and the rest of the boat will look exactly like my Test Spot.

    Here's the 28' Rinker































    Here's the results from my Test Spot on the 28' Rinker


    Before

    Note the ghosting effect caused by the vinyl graphics. In my experience, you cannot remove the ghosting effect 100% but you can get it good enough that you don't see it without these high powered lights I'm using to light up the side of the hull.









    After

    The ghosting is removed about 95% and this is after 4 separate sanding steps.

    Re: Boats are here for Boat Detailing Class at Autogeek!

    Hey Mike,

    Man thatís beat up like Kiwis beat up boats. An educated guess & Iíd say on average 85% of all trailered boats here in NZ are in this condition. We seem to be a reactive nation more so than proactive.

    Thatís a superb canvas for your class to learn/work on Mike, & although I donít do a lot of boats but I would love to be a part of this class sometime. Thoroughly enjoy reading your How To Detail Boats book & pick up more tips & tricks every time I read it. Certainly changed my approach when detailing boats.

    Iím digging the test spot . . . Exciting.

    Enjoy the class everyone, I look forward to the pictures of progress & of course the finished results.

    Aaryn NZ.

    Boats are here for Boat Detailing Class at Autogeek!

    Mike, I'm really looking forward to the class this weekend. I assume you wet sanded this boat with a couple of different grits, then possibly used Marine 31 captains one step compound and polish with a wool pad. Is this correct?

    Re: Boats are here for Boat Detailing Class at Autogeek!

    You think thats bad you should see the condition of some of the boats at my buddies "Yacht club". One of them is actually pink/borderline red. It used to be White. He got mad because I called it a "Boat Yard" and not a "Yacht club". The place is a dump. The water is polluted and there isn't even 1 Yacht in the whole place.

    I went down there to help detail his boat. I brought my Flex 3401 and a bunch of cutting pads. I had never worked on a boat I figured how hard could it be. The flex and microfiber cutting pad with compound barely made a dent in it. I had to do each section 3 times to get through all the crud and it was killing the pads. Needless to say I only got one 6' x 2' foot section done all day.

    The rest of the boat still looks like crap. I told him If we go back I want to use a rotary on it to cut through all the crud. He's scared of it so It's not getting done. He'll have to hire someone. It's way to much work to have to help someone do it for free. Especially when they don't even help.

    Re: Boats are here for Boat Detailing Class at Autogeek!

    This is a must class for anyone that details boats in any way.

    There were many seasoned boat detailers in this last class. I can personally testify that all of them were amazed and angry.


    Amazed at learning how simple it can really be with the right products and tools.

    Angry because of all the money they have been missing out on because of lack of knowledge.


    I took this class to be able to offer more to my future customers.


    Great class Mike.


    If you have been thinking about taking this class do it. You will not regret it.
