has anyone done a how to on properly sanding, waxing, and buffing the sides of the boat yet? my blue is starting to fade in the back, along with some light scuffs from the boards hitting it and i wanna bring the color back to life.

I posted some good links a while back. Try searching "wet sand" or "wet sanding" "gel coat". Good luck!

I did it to my Outback. It was some serious work but I started in Feb. and would do a section at a time and buff it out. Get good quality paper and use it in the right order and you'll be very happy! :)

yeah, get a random orbit sander, some paper and a few cold ones and bring the shine back to your ride.
