Smile Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Many thanks for a superb description of the tools and processes of spiffing up your boat. I intend to follow it to the letter.

One question: for the small, tight places where the Makita is awkward and cumbersome, can I use my Makita 6" random orbit sander instead? Otherwise, I'll have to apply the buffing/polishing coats by hand; that will be a lot of elbow grease and won't produce a uniform result, I'm afraid.

Thanks again,


P.S. Belay the question. After doing what I should have done first--read all the responses to Maine's initial post--I see the question's been asked and answered more than once. So, onward with the orbital for the decks, cockpit, and cabin. But thanks once again to Maine Sail for a truly valuable post.
