    Oxidation Removal Kit

    Hi, I thought you might like to see the results i got on my boat using the Oxidation Removal Kit by Meg`s.
    I have had the boat about 1 year and as you can see the gel coat was in a bad state.

    Some Before Pics











    I Got hold of the kit in England by contacting Meguiar`s who told me they had 1 or 2 in stock even though it`s not part of thier product range here.

    I applied the products with a rotory polisher and foam pads which worked pretty well even though they was not the Meg`s ones.
    As you can see they results looked pretty good even for a first attempt.

    After Pics











    You can see here the difference in the before and after




    I`ve still got to antifoul the boat and do a bit more polishing but as you can see the Meg`s stuff really worked well and other guys in the boat yard were really impressed and a few said they wanted to get hold of the kit so they could do there own boats.
    If anyone wants any more info just let me know.

    Cheers

    Hi traindriver,

    Nice work and nice write-up with pictures!


    Meguiar's Marine line works awesome!

    That's a fairly large looking boat, what are the dimensions and what are you going to use it for?

    boat size

    Thanks for the praise.
    The boat is 20`X 7`6" so its not that big it just looks big when its in a craddle and your looking up at it.
    It made by Hardy Marine here in England and is they call it The Fishing 20. They also do a cruising version which has a larger cabin. It has a Honda 75hp 4 stroke and a Honda 6hp Aux engine.



    And it has a removable cover on the back



    Its used for pleasure sea fishing out of Brighton Marina on the south coast of England.

    Hey,

    You say, made by Hardy. I wonder if it is a company related to Hardy Brothers--the world famous fly fishing equipment maker??

    Hardy

    I know of the Hardy you are thinking about and Hardy Marine are a different company which, as far as i`m aware have no relation to the tackle company.Hardy Marine are still going and produce some good strong sea going boats. I know of one 20` boat which has the same hull as mine but is the cruising version which has just gone around the entire U.K and accross to Ireland by a couple and have featured in a magazine here.
    They don`t seem to make my model of boat any more but if anyone is interested in them they have a website..Hardy Marine.
    thanks for the response, your right 2hotford, it was pretty hard work but even some parts which i did buy hand came out good.

    There were parts where the craddle pads were that i couldn`t get to with the rotory and had to do by hand.Have a look here....

    This is where the pad was moved up and you can see the un-polished area below it



    This was the same area after polishing by hand..



    As you can see the Meguiars #49 worked well applied buy hand with a bit of elbow grease.

    Great work! How long did it take you to do it? What wax did you use for your LSP?

    Boats are harder to detail than cars because there is so much surface area to work with! But you showed the amazing results you can get on gelcoat with the right products. A rotary is pretty much mandatory for that job!

    That looks great, looks like lots of hard work! Can't wait to try some of the marine products myself.

    LSP

    RamAirV1,
    I used the Meguiar's Mirror Glaze Oxidation Removal Kit.
    it is a 3 stage kit which contains

    1. 16 oz bottle #49 oxidation remover
    2. 16 oz bottle #45 polish
    3. 16 oz bottle #56 pure wax

    I applied the #56 Boat/Rv wax with a soft foam pad on the rotory and buffed it off by hand. It went on and came off easy.Not sure how hard wearing the wax is and i wondered if it would be worth topping it with som Nxt wax as i have some i use on our car.

    Maybe Mike could come up with some answers.

    The Meguiar's marine waxes have been very durable for me. I have used #50 with great results. They also make a marine polymer sealant.

    I don't know if the marine waxes are compatible with the automotive waxes. They very well could be. Mike can probably best answer that one.

    That #49 is an amazing product!

    I wish I didn't have to work to pay for all these toys LOL, so I could have more time to detail my boat.
