Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Hi Maine,

Appreciate all your posts. Speaking of waxing the hull, have you ever heard of wet sanding with 1000grit sandpaper to remove small imperfections in the gelkote prior to putting on the wax? The imperfections are small raised dimples that have appeared over the years. It's not over the entire hull just around the bow on the starboard side which for years received the afternoon sun. It's an area about 2 to 3 feet above the waterline.
