Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

In the current issue of soundings Mike Borrelli on page 100 says:
"You can bring back the gloss finish by wet sanding, buffing and polishing, but this is not a long-term solution. the result is short-lived and the fading often comes back within a year."

He may have been referring only to darker-colored gel-coats it was not clear.

This does not make sense to me. Once it was protected again I would think it would say good for a long time.
