Product Details

TotalBoat TotalBuff Rubbing Compound is a fast-cut marine polish that is ideal for removing stubborn oxidation and restoring your hull's original color. This liquid polishing compound is designed to remove 600/800 wet sanding scratches from gelcoat and previously painted surfaces.

TotalBuff is the first step in a three-step buffing system, and should be applied using a polisher and wool pad. Follow up with a coat of TotalBoat TotalShine for maximum gloss and an outstanding finish. For superior protection and longevity, a final coat of TotalBoat Premium Boat Wax is recommended.

Info & Guides
At Jamestown, many boaters ask us what we recommend when it comes to buffing. We take our cues from the experienced boatyards that shared with us their multi-step system. Once you see the results for yourself, we are sure you will agree.

First off, let it be noted that these compounds are essentially liquid abrasives that are used to lightly sand or polish your hull. For more faded or "oxidized" hulls, pay close attention to the compounding step in order to restore the hull's original color.

Step 1: Compounding
For faded topsides, we recommend starting with TotalBuff Rubbing Compound. It works towards bringing back the hull's original color and revitalizing that ugly faded look. Apply with a polisher and a pad.

Step 2: Finishing
The next step is to follow up with an application of TotalShine Finishing Compound using a polisher and pad. TotalShine will grant a glossy, bright finish, as well as remove any micro scratches and swirl marks.

Step 3: Waxing
The final step is to protect the newly polished finish with a wax like TotalBoat Premium Boat Wax. It's important to seal and protect the finish with a good wax to maintain that glossy look. Any buff cloth or pad to hand apply the wax will suffice.

surprised

The best rubbing compound i've ever used . I thought is was expensive , but I was very wrong .I brought the black hull gelcoat back on a 18 year old boat. Not even the old faithful Dupont came close.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

This product is outstanding. Also used with the Total boat polish after buffing out the paint with the Totalbuff. Both are easy to use....the boat finish looked new.

Great seemingly all in one compound
By 22Grady from NJ

My boat had relatively heavy oxidation. I did 2 passes with a foam pad with TotalBuff and I now have a great gloss. It's not quite a mirror finish (it's close), but this isn't a finishing compound. Great product

I have tried many automotive compounds but Total buff worked the best. I buffed the deck of a 35 foot boat that was badly oxidized, After sanding with 1000 grit it buffed up great.

Didn't accomplish what I was hoping it would.
By Worlock from Kansas

I have used Automatic for 20+ years. I bought this because of a youtube video of this product getting sand marks out. It didn't do any better than what I use now. It is good for bringing the gel coat to a shine. However for the money I can get a gallon of Automatic. So if your look for just buffing compound it will work great.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
