Default Dock rash/minor scratches

I used the buff magic for the first time last night with a DA polisher and the wool pad. I was trying to remove some dock rash and a few small scratches. I followed the videos, started on speed 2 and moved on to 3 on the last few passes. I didn't see an improvement in what I was trying to accomplish. Did I do something wrong, maybe using the wrong product, speed, etc. thanks for any help.

I would hand wet sand with 1500 sandpaper, and then do the buffing.

Thanks, was trying to avoid the wet sanding but looking like thats the route to take. Probably hold off til the fall.

With your hand go lightly with the 1500, I've done many times to get old names off for new boaters.

Wow, sorry it took us so long to respond! We have been absolutely slammed here, getting the boat ready for the Bahamas. Anyways, JimPend is correct. Buff Magic works from around a P600 scratch down to a finishing polish. Most dock rash cuts deeper than that. Wet Sanding is a great way to get down into the gelcoat and level off an area. Good luck!
