Restoring Paint on Fiberglass Hull

Recommended Posts

I’ve recently bought myself an old speed boat and I’m planning on putting some love back into it. At the moment the hull is white but it’s got some brown stain on it. Anyone have any suggestions on restoring/improving the paint?

Also, does anyone have an ideas as to what brand and year this hull might be? The previous owner had no idea what brand it is.

Cheers

Mike

Good cut and polish should come up nice. Or an oxidation remover. Gumption works a treat on the hard stains but It might be a bit aggressive.. be careful. 

Looks good!

Is it easy to lift up when its on the ground like that?

I moved my axle backwards so I now have about 70 KG on the towbar.

I was getting fed up with the boat tipping up when i was working down the back of it

Did you manage to get some TLC done over the weekend and what was the result?

Hey Antony, 

With the trailer axle so far back it's really sturdy when I'm working in it, but it's an absolute pain to move. I have to use the jockey wheel to move it round, otherwise I need a second person to lift it. 

Haven't had a chance to give it the TLC yet, I've been away a lot for work and when I am home the boat is in the water. I'll get to over the next few weeks and keep you posted. 

Mike
