Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub

Great article. I'd highly recommend the small random orbital buffer made by Shurehold. It's variable speed and relatively small for inside cockpits etc. Sheepskin pads for compounds, and foam pads for applications like Finessit II. Rubbing compounds work best at very low speeds and enough pressure to keep the pad from spinning. Always use a different pad as you work up the scale and mark them inside with a sharpie. You don't want rubbing compound contaminating a later buff or polish.
