Rubbing Compound Question???


Just bought a C&C 35 this fall. Overall great condition, but definitely in need of a buff. Medium oxidation (in my non-expert opinion). Now my question - what's the best product for this?

I went into my yacht yard's ship store looking for 3M Rubbing Compound. The guy working there suggested, and sold me on "3M Imperial Compound and Finishing Material" Does this provide the proper cut for my needs? I am not wetsanding before hand. Will I need to a polish to finish the job after using this product? What is the difference between this and normal Rubbing Compound.

Thank you
