Gorgeous work. Is that 3M Imperial hard to use? Any tricks or anything to watch out for? I've got a similar hull cleanup in my spring plans.

Thx
Get a proper variable speed buffer with a lamb wool bonnet to start with,,,
I run mine at 900- 1200RPM, keep it moving over the surface with a light pressure. Keep the pad flat as possible.
Don' t do more than a 2' square section at a time, keep the pad and compound cool.
Good luck!

Thanks Ruffryder :) Just installed last week along with the Mag 350. I'm away at work now but I can't wait to get home and test the boat out. I'll post a full report with pics in the next week.
