Dyer 10

< Back to Dyer

Thursday

The final task on my list was to clean up the nearly 40 year-old hull, still in its original gelcoat.  The finish was in quite good condition considering the age and use, but would benefit from a modicum of attention.  I overturned the boat and propped it up for (relatively) convenient working height, taking care to protect the pristine new rubrail.

There was a yellowish stain on the bottom and around the waterline, so my first step was to apply some anti-yellowing material to remove most of the staining.  This worked as expected.

Next, I buffed the hull with rubbing compound to remove additional staining and any more significant scratches or minor damage, followed by a buffing with a polishing material to finish things off.  The results were good given the age and beginning condition of the hull.
