Get the cabinet guy to send you some of the finish he uses, then figure out what prep has to be done to blend. If this stuff is Shellac, it will blend easily.

Pull off the cowlings, use a tooth brush and mineral spirits to clean, finish with a degreaser (Simple green) bath and coat with CRC protectant. Bill's product also works wonders.

That hull is darned near an Airslot. Had a 25, I've never been more impressed with a hull more in my life than on that hull. So fun, pretty ride!
