Hi, Great Info from all, I have been reading and formulating a plan.
I will be doing this to a 1999 38FT R&C Leopard 38 (or Moorings 3800) this winter in FL. The boat is lightly oxidized I would say, and probably hasn't been treated since production. It is not to the point where chalk comes off on hands, clothes, etc...

My plan of attack is:
1. 3M Heavy Duty Rubbing Compound w/CSS Yellow (or Orange?) Pad
2. Presta Chroma 1500 w/CSS Orange (or Blue?) Pad
3. Meguiar's #7 w/CSS White (or Black) Pad
4. Nu Finish Hand Wax with Black Foam Pads

Does this sound logical? If so, how much of each product would you recommend for a one time job on a boat this big? (Including the flat portions of the deck?) Originally I was thinking a gallon of each, but after reading further, it looks like a lot will go a long way?

And how many of each pad would you recommend?

Would you recommend any cleaning solvents or a wet sand in this situation?
