Re: Followed hull polishing step to a "T" but......
I have been trying different things for the last few hours. I first wiped down the hull again with denatured alcohol which took off some of the Finesse. I then put on the 3M lambs wool pad and did a high speed buff with the edge of the pad just in one area and it made a huge difference but not SUPER shiny as others have posted pictures of after Finesse. I then went to the stern where I had not used the Finesse yet and just did two coats of Collinite on that to see what finish I would get and it's nice and 90% better than it was due to neglect but not NEARLY as shiny as I see other boats.
Sucks to live in the Midwest where you are limited for time to work. Last warm day here. Was hoping to have the hull done by Sunday so I can wrap up some other stuff before I need to think about covering the boat.
Oh and I was going to wet sand but decided against it after reading others state that unless your hull is SUPER bad, don't bother. Maybe I should have but I really think I am doing something incorrectly with the Finesse stage. I told my wife come hell or high water, the boat is launching next spring.
