Going Slow!

Thanks for the great tip!

I am going to go very slow as I have never had a "real" buffer polisher in my hands before and I sure do not want to mess up an already pretty boat/hull.

When you say "slow", I presume you are speaking primarily about the RPM's, correct? I'll likely practice a bit on my old pick up truck tail gate and the keel........
