Glossy, like-new gel coat
A shiny, durable gel coat can keep your boat looking its best for all the adventures you have planned—however, it is susceptible to oxidation over time thanks to sunshine, weather and the simple nature of life on the water. Plus, your gel coat is durable yet somewhat soft, so aggressive scrubbing and abrasive tools aren’t always the best option for maintenance. Fortunately, wet sanding combines the best of both worlds! By pairing sanding materials with liquid, we are able to bring back the shine of your gel coat without worrying about scratching it with harsh tools. The difference is in the details, and can be observed right away. Wet sanding can transform your boat from a dull, worn-down appearance to a like-new shine that looks and functions exactly the way you want it to.
Now, you may be wondering when to wet sand. You’ll know it is time for some TLC when your boat starts looking dull, or sporting chalky streaks, a few tell-tale signs of oxidation. Wet sanding is a sophisticated process that calls for time and expertise, so leave it to the pros!
