When it comes to keeping your boat in tip top shape it takes more than the occasional cleaning. Gel coat is a very hardy finish but requires maintenance. Wax doesn’t last forever and needs to be reapplied often. If your boat starts getting dull that means the gel coat is starting to break down on a microscopic level on the surface. At this point you can apply wax and it may bring a certain shine back but does not address the deteriorated gel coat underneath the wax. If the gel coat hasent broke down to far, the only way to bring back the “Factory Shine” is to compound, polish and then wax. Once this has been done it is important to keep a good quality wax applied year around.
Due to the different stages of deterioration the best way to get an accurate estimate is to let us look at the boat and determine the proper care.
