Well, that's a loaded question! Ask a hundred boating enthusiats and you'll probably get as many passionate answers.

I guess the right answer depends on the condition of the gel.

If the gel is really oxidized, you'll want to get some kind of compound that will cut the gel a bit. Then after, you'll want a polish.

I know 3M makes some really nice stuff, just make sure you stick to marine products designed to work on gel coat. Stay away from auto products as some can actually cause gel to yellow.

Did you happen to find the old Steury brochure that I posted in the gallery? I figured you probably already saw it, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

Hey Chris,
I went over the area above the transom above the rub line .I used some water and comet.I wet it first ,then sprinkled a small amount of comet on an old sock .used minimal pressure as its not oxidized too bad.it came clean very easily,then used some turtle wax on it and hit it with the electric buffer,came out really nice! good shine.Over the winter i will remove the snaps and rails and such and do the rest of the boat,just want to make sure i get the right wax.I'll try the collinite stuff and use several coats.then I'm going to paint the hull.And attempt the seats as the tops of them are split and i doubt i could match that green color.Cant wait to get it done.oh yeah ,,,cool literature!

Try to stick to marine waxes if you can that are designed for fibreglass. They are designed to work with gelcoats. It's not that the others don't work, they do, just not very well sometimes, as in they don't hold up very well and some also don't let the gel coat breathe properly or can cause the gel to yellow or discolor prematurely which is obviously not good.

If you want to go "all out", you can get some compound and an electric buffer which works really well. You just have to be careful with the buffer and compound as you want to make sure you don't burn the gel coat. When done properly though, it's the best way to clean up oxidized gel. Then once you're done with that step, you then put on some really good marine wax a couple of times a season.

Show us some pics as you progress! I love the oldies as there are lots of good memories built right into them.
