I need to have my Wellcraft Portofino all shined up, the gelcoat is faded and needs a good rubbing compound and wax.

I am going to hire some Mexican dock hands but before I do what is the best product to use and will it REALLY make the boat shine like new.

The Vault. I love your boat. Did you do the dash? What did you use for the base?

I have one also that I want rubbed out or painted.
Did you have it done or do it yourself?

My stripes have been removed. I only have the painted ones now. I also painted/Awlgrip my swim platform a light sand color, it turned out really awesome!

The Boat looks new!

Waxed it too, and rewashed the boat several times in between coats.


when you buffed, did the compound affect your stripes?

McGuire has a new product called: "Ultimate Compound" This works great by hand or with orbital buffer. Make sure you wax afterwords.

Depending on how bad it is faded, don't expect miracles. A decent buffing with a product like Buff Magic will make a big difference. The problem may be that the shine may not last a full season; perhaps only a few months. The next go round should last longer.
My boat sat for 4 years due to marital issuses. Now, after 4 years of shining it up, I can get a full season without it dulling up over the boating season. Each year the shine got better and lasted longer. I am now at the point where only a fine compound is needed.

I like TRE-Wax for compunding and Finesse-It for for polishing. Collonite works good for a wax.

You might want to ask on the marine detailing forum. Lots of guys there with lots of experience to give you advice
