Wet sanding the hull is hard to beat for overall long lasting results. It takes a whole lot of work, but trust me, if it's done right, that's the best option. Like I said it's a lot of work, but it's something most anyone can do...all you need is water and and the right (fine grit) sand paper. After all the sanding is complete, the boat gets buffed, waxed and then is ready to look pretty. Bass boat restoration sites are a good place to find in-depth information on restoring fiberglass hulls and how to do it properly.

You can try other easier stuff first, but if that doesn't work or fades with time, wet sand the hull...

3M makes a fiberglass restore you can use with a buffer. Best method I've ever found to restore faded fiberglass finish. My boat is black and the gunnels were very oxidated. This was the only method that restored it back to original.

Unfortunately, I borrowed my friends 3M formula and I can't find it locally. Wish I could give you more details....I need a bottle myself.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
