Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

I have never done this before and followed Mainsailes tips just about to a T. It looks incredible - a wet, mirror-like finish on the whole boat. It looked like a dirty piece of chalk when I started out. With anything, I think the best advice was regarding the correct tools and products for this job. The guy two stalls down from me was admiring my work and told me he was going to do the same thing - with one of those Ryobi, single speed things with a terrycloth bonnet on it. I'm glad I will have launched by the time he tries that. Thanks Maine!
