    Imperfections like??? Is it the old school technology and some not so crisp tape lines or is it dirt or waves or... You could always wetsand and buff but somehow I think that is not what is bothering you.

    if you want it to be perfect.....take the boat and your checkbook down to TRG Custom Fiberglass and let Todd have his way with it.

    Doesn't required perfectionism have something to do with OCD?

    Dave why don't you post Pix of the "Problem" areas. Fortunately, mine is all one color so there are no lines to match from side to side and no bleeding at tape lines. I do know at the height of jet boat building they were crnking them out and like tract homes some things are overlooked in the quality areas in the interst of production.

    cy, i cant post pics from the river so i will do it when i get home..it is the two back corners of the boat that dull up in the sun and water and also if you look at the deck at a certain angle you can see a couple dull spots..
    kreg, you got all summer to make it down here, we will find you a place to stay..
    hotrod, i had a few beers and took some money from the indians last night and was felling pretty large,lol. ocd??hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I would say that a wet sand and polish would do nicely for the boat. It is just where the sun and water has baked out the shine in the gell and it needs get down to some fresh color and knock off the oxidation.

    i am afraid to do anything like that to the boat because it is orginal and i dont want to f'it up....hell i dont even like it to be uncovered and come out of storage..maybe i should buy a hunk of crap to run around on the river and leave this one in storage..
