    Thanks to the advice here on the BOC i decided to sand on my 'glass boat today. Started out with some 600 grit, then 1000, then 1500, then rubbing compound, then polish, then wax. Heres some before and after pix.

    thanks. attracting biguns is the next step. Sad to say that i have burned a lot of fuel out of the darn thing and caught only a couple keepers out of it.Lol. At least the boat will look good while I am getting skunked!:bad_smelly:

    thanks , the finish was very rough to the touch. Spent about 5 hrs on the 1st side. I am trying to get it polished up for this upcoming weekend. Want it to look good when we go hang out on the sand bar on Mo. river.

    Now that is what sweat and elbow grease will do for yea. Its ameazing what a little sand paper and some wax will do. You guys with all these boats out there if you want to clean them up real good, inside and out, if you have a store called dollar tree go to it and get you some Awsome , the one in the clear bottle and not the orange stuff, that is the best cleaner by far. Just don't put it on your glass it won't come off glass. Get some for the wife in the house to and see how pleased she will be with its ability to clean.
    I will be bringing some to the gathering so you can see first hand what it does.

    Did I tell you it worked great on cleaning tires to. The only drawback is that it will take all the wax off anything.
    Good job on the boat.
