    Default Removing Oxidation?

    I have a 2007 Super Air Nautique that sits on a trailer with chrome fenders. Those fenders have burned into the gel coat on lower sides of the boat. I'm hoping that it can be restored with some elbow grease, but some have suggested having the gel cut out and replaced. Does that sound like over kill?

    What's the best way to remove oxidation?

    This statement "cut out and replaced" is senseless in and of itself. Ground down and resprayed would be a more correctly stated method if the existing gel is severely worn thru, as in down to the bare glass. If not worn thru you can color sand and buff or just buff out the discoloration with rubbing compounds and waxing to restore the gel to like new condition. (preferred method) If you don't correct the fender rub condition you are just spinning your wheels as it will only continue to reoccur. Fender rubbing is not that uncommon. You can remove the fender backing panel and replace with a thinner material, (prolly the cheapest, easiest method) lower the fenders if you have sufficient tire clearance or raise the boat some on the trailer to try and correct the condition. If you can post a picture of the gel coat condition we could likely be more helpful.

    Have fun.

    My boat had some oxidation that was remedied by Meguiar's #49 Heavy Duty Oxidation remover followed by Meguiar's #50 Cleaner Wax - both were applied with a polisher.
