OK, I'll go first.
Will any of your products remove the shadow left in the gelcoat by old boat grafixs? My gelcoat has a shadow of the old boat name and nothing I've tried has worked.

Thanks!

Over the winter I purchased your complete polisher/buffer package. I also picked up some buff magic, all your pads and finally some pro polish. My boat is a 2005 Monterey black hull. I purchased it last year from the original owner - it only had 50 hours and was very well maintained.

I'm not sure what I expected but I really didn't see much of a difference after using the buff magic with the exception of a few areas that had light oxidation. I watched all your videos - used all the correct pads and was careful not to use too much buff magic. Maybe the answer is just the fact that my boat gel coat is in pretty good shape. I do have a few areas where maybe a fender rub or a very scratches but the buff magic didn't really change anything. I actually stopped using the buff magic and just applied the pro polish.

I'm i doing anything wrong - suggestions? It's not that I disliked the product but I just didn't see any difference. Maybe my expectations were off - thoughts?

Thanks

556 guy,

Graphic shadows are tough. The outline is actually an area of "like new" gelcoat protected by the old graphics. In order to blend the letters out, you will need to use a compound like our Buff Magic to make the surrounding gelcoat match the shadow. Take your time and be patient. Best of luck.

swest,

Our Buff Magic is designed to remove oxidation and restore gelcoat, paint and fiberglass. If your hull already looks good, Buff Magic probably won't do that much. Applying the Pro Polish is the right choice because it protects the finish. You shouldn't have to use the Buff Magic as long as your hull keeps its shine. Hope this helps.

Capt. Sam: Recently winterized my boat and had fuel stabilizer get on the fiberglass around the fuel fill as I didn't use my plastic wide mouth funnel to prevent this from happening.

It's left a yellow stain in the fiberglass around the fills. Any suggestions??

A quick pass with Buff Magic should take it right off. If you keep your boat waxed, make sure to reapply to the area after using Buff Magic. Make sure to work the product until it turns into a haze. Then you can clean it off with a microfiber towel. Best of luck!

I used Buff Magic for the first time last night. I have some minor dock rash and light surface scratches. I followed the video instruction with the polisher and wool pad and it didn't remove the scratches at all. I started on speed 2 and went to 3 for my last pass. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe I need a heavier compound? Thanks
