While checking out the hull bottom on my 89 Montauk, I discovered that letting the hull rest on sand for a period of time while picnicking with the family on an island resulted in the hi shine on the fiberglass getting sanded away from the wave action. My question is what do I do to get that surface back to the original condition? Iím sure it must involve a pen and a checkbook somehow. Thanks for the help.

If you are going to continue using the boat for a picnic launch get a beach "bumper'. I do this a lot, why own a boat if you can't enjoy it?
If not some 1000 grit sanding and a good polish should work providing the gel coat is not completely worn through. If so a bit of Spectrum repair paste should fix that.
Send me the check, I've got a pen.

This sounds like a job for Keelguard Guy! (my main value added around here) See . Costs around $130, and no pen is required, you can order online with a credit card.
