Re: The new tub

Mick, I used 3M cutting compound and their restorer polish/wax. I normally overcoat with Meguiars Gold Class wax but the 3M stuff actually came out pretty nicely. I might put a coat of wax on towards the end of summer while she's still in the water to the Meguiars will be used for that. I have a bottle of pure carnuba wax as well but that's a right pain to use, have to have the exact right temperate, humidity etc.

Looks great. I've owned Orange, Yellow, White, and Red boats in the past and I much prefer the ones with a little colour to the them, obviously.

Re: The new tub

Just curious, did you use Mcguires products on her? The wife and I need to do the same procedure and would love to get the results you did, she looks great! Well, if an orange is a she anyway...

Congrats, Paul. C&Cs are some of the sloopiest sloops anywhere -- they just look right from all angles. Refitting it should keep ya out of trouble, eh?

Re: The new tub

Nice job Paul. I saw her in Harbour Yachts before you bought her and that first shot is a very good likeness of her faded state then.

You worked a miracle in very short order - makes me feel like a slacker with my "new" boat.

And she's back home in her slip. With strap marks from the hoist. Oh well. Just the rest of the work to do now.
