Default "Is that a brand new boat"

Just wanted to share a story that happened this weekend while I was putting my 1995 2320 Parker in the water. I go to the ramp and am backing down the ramp...another Parker was just launched...a 2005 boat the same as mine....as I am unlocking the straps the owner says "is that a brand new boat?"....I looked over and smiled - "nope, its a 1995"...the guy couldnt believe it. I spent a lot of time on the boat and wanted to get her looking great this season so I broke down and bought some Shurholds Buff Magic/Polish and the pro rotary polisher. In years past I would use 3M compound and some elbow grease. The Shurhold stuff works and the results speak for themselves. Great products!

It's always great to hear stories like yours! We're happy to hear that you're enjoying our products. That Parker is a great boat and worthy of the time spent behind the Rotary machine. It sounds like you've got it covered, but if you ever have a question don't hesitate to reach out!

I have the shurhold dual action polisher but almost considered the rotary polisher. While my hull is a 2001 and looks great, i am wondering if the results would be better with a rotary polisher? However, with that said, I do not have alot of experience using polishers/buffers so I didn't want to chance doing any damage. Anyone have an opinion with this? Will it really do damage? Do you have to keep it moving? I use the exact pattern that shurhold recommends when using buff magic and pro polish. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

If you've never used a polisher before, then the Dual Action Polisher is a safe bet and good for most situations. However, the Rotary is a far more powerful corrective tool. It can cut through defects much quicker, but at the cost of being harder to control. There is a learning curve, but it's not rocket surgery. A little practice goes a long way before working on the "real" project. Here's a video showing how a Dual Action Polisher compares to a Rotary on a dark colored hull.

“Rocket Surgery” is one of my favorite phrases
