I had previously only used this product detailing cars... When my father decided to restore his mid 70s sailboat, this was one of the first products I reached for. After several courses of wet-sanding, we utilized Finesse It with a wool pad and a high speed buffer. The results were amazing. All fine scratches from the sandpaper disappeared and the final result was a gel coat that owners of new boats would be jealous of. Be prepared to use some elbow grease and be patient working the product in evenly. If you do, you'll be very pleased with the results.

      Comments about Finesse-It II Finishing Material:

      I used this in a step process on my 30 year old sailboat. First I wet sanded with 500 then 1000 then compounded then the finesse it II and last I waxed with collonite paste.
      The trick with these products it to keep them a little wet with a spray bottle when you apply it.
      It was a lot of work but the gelcoat has been brought back to life and looks great.

          I have been using 3m products on my boat since the day I purchased it. I would recommend this product over any other polish on the market. It is not made to remove scratches, but to bring out the color of your gel coat.

            This product has brought new life back to a dull top side of the boat. I had previously used a professional service to polish and wax the top side, but it just ended up with a "bright dull" finish. The Finesse-It has brought new life back to the surface. It was easy to use and the results are awesome.

                    I brought my boat back to an amazing new look finish using the old fashion wet sand approach, followed by 3M rubbing compound, followed by 3M Finesse-It II for the final polish. Finished with a high end wax. Everyone comments on how GREAT the boat looks.
