Aqua-Buff polishing compounds are made for heavy duty compounding and polishing applications. Use Aqua-Buff to clean heavily oxidized gel coat and topside paints, and yield a shiny polished finish.
Aqua-Buff 1000 is used in the first stage of compounding, to be followed up with 2000. Environmentally safe water-based formula means you will use half as much compound as other traditional buffing compounds and polishes. Both 1000 and 2000 come in two gallon pails.

Spread Aqua-Buff 1000 on the surface to be compounded with a brush or cloth, several square feet at a time using one-half the normal amount and mist the surface with water. Immediately machine buff with a clean, damp compounding pad. Repeat the process to eliminate scratches from exceptionally hard surfaces. Should the compound become dry while being buffed, re-wet by misting the surface with water. Follow with Aqua-Buff 2000 compound and polish for the ultimate shine.

How do I know if my fiberglass pool needs Aqua-Buffed or re-gel coated? HELP!
If the surface is not damaged, but only oxidized, i.e., and has a grey-whitish look to it, Aqua-Buff is probably your best bet. Follow the directions exactly, and remember that a little goes a long way. Use a good quality buffer, not a car polisher.
Unless it is gouged out or painted aqua buff has worked every time for me so far. Sometimes may need 1000 and 2000 to get like new shine.
How much of this do I need for a 20 foot boat?
less than a cup
I buffed a fifty foot boat and only used about a 1/2 gallon. Goes far and easy to clean up. Use a spray bottle with clean water when it starts to dry and buff until it disappears. I used a wool bonnet on a variable speed buffer with great results. I would highly recommend this product.
The condition of your boat will be a big factor . A two gallon pale will be way more than you will need ,but keeps well for next time. A little tip for you would be to fill a spray bottle with water , it will make the process go faster by helping get rid of excess compound
the smallest amount you can purchase will be plenty for a 20' boat...think quart size. This compound goes a long way and you do not use as much as you might of an oil based compound.
I am a boat dealer & purchase this is two gallon buckets. That will do several boats. I would think that one quart would be plenty to buff out your boat. This product works great. Good luck. Chris Hicks - Fish and Ski Marine

This product is very hard to find. Best bet is to buy it on-line from Jamestown Distributors.
I have no idea. I use this product religiously in my boat detailing business and buy it online and have it shipped to me by Jamestown Distributors. Anytime I have found it locally it has been outrageously expensive. Hope this helps! Scott
Have it sent to your front door !!

Best compound I've ever used
I use the 2000 as a finishing compound on every new boat that leaves the shop. It gives an unmatched gloss and mirror shine. It also saves time and money with repairs, because it easily buff's out 800 grit sand paper scratches and saves me having to use finer paper.
