I have a 30 year old Pursuit I am restoring. The fiberglass had been out in the sun neglected for the past 15 years. Gelcoat had oxidized so bad if you touched it you came away looking like you had touched "wet paint". I originally used 3M Compound and Polish. Boat Shop that's doing my re-power gave me a sample of the High Gloss Gelcoat Compound. It's quicker and achieved just as polished a finish as the 3M Compound and Polish....and cheaper by the gallon. I was using a 3M 5719 wool compound pad. People stopped by and could not believe the resurrection of the gelcoat.
