? regel coat or paint?

Postby My Jurisdiction » September 11th, 2015, 11:42 am

I am an owner of a 82" 3007 aft cabin. The years of neglect have been noticeable. The cracks are pumping up my OCD to the point of overload. I am wondering if regel coat is best,or paint. COST is not the issue. 3 month owner.

Why do you think it has to be refinished? Have you had someone who polishes for a living take a look at it? It could just need a really good 3 stage polish or wet sand and polish to bring the shine back if there is still enough gel left. The cracks are a different story, and only a repair will fix those.
