Yep, exactly why it's at my fiberglass guy's shop. He'll spray some gelcoat and blend it back in. Boat looks great otherwise.Wow that's burn is a shame after such a great job on 99% of the boat. i assume the that will require re-gelcoating or just paint? A good fiberglass guy should be able to blend those repairs right in.
First and last time it will ever happen. Sanding was not what I was looking for. Wanted a good compounding, buff out and wax. He did the sanding on his own. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. He was so far into trying to bring the original color back, if he had quit, was afraid it would be splotchy. I might have caught him sooner if I lived down there. Being in Kentucky and the boat in South Carolina hindered me from checking in on the progress. What's done is done, I'll move forward and have the gel sprayed and blended as best he can and live with the outcome. Overall the boat does look the best it ever has since I've owned it. I'll keep it waxed with Collinite and hit it with the wax detail spray from my car show days, in between the major waxes a couple of times a year.KY - Nice outcome but it is far better for your gelcoat to not have to do any wet sanding. Just my two cents.
Here is my 16 year old 330 Express - photo from yesterday. Twice a year she gets 3M Cleaner Wax for lightly oxidized surfaces then sealed with Collinite Fleet Wax. This boat will never see a wet sanding job so long as I own it (been over 10 years now).

Where did you get it done in SC? I have a 2000 192 Grady and just got a quote for $1400 to detail it. Seems high to me....but I've heard they do a great job. I am thinking about doing it myself, have a Porter-Cable buffer and time....but don't really know the right way to do it.
