Re: Revitalizing my 1988 17' BW

After you wash the boat, using a standard garden hose and a basic cleaner like Simple Green, wipe your finger across the dry gelcoat in several places. Is there a chalky substance on your finger tip?

The answer will help with specific cleaning techniques and product recommendations.

In terms of repair, how large an area was repaired? And was it only a gelcoat repair or was there fiberglass work, too?
