TotalBoat TotalShine Finishing Compound

TotalBoat TotalShine Finishing Compound leaves a high-gloss, glazed finish. It is designed to be used as a finish coat after compounding with TotalBuff to remove micro-fine sanding scratches or compound swirl marks. TotalShine also works well on faded or neglected gelcoat.

TotalShine contains no wax or silicone and is an excellent pre-wax application, followed by TotalBoat Premium Boat Wax. Apply with a machine polisher and buff pad.

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.

Total Shine


Worked as specified. Great at removing compound buffing "swirls." Left a mirror-like shine.

Sweet Finish


Last year I bought a 15 year old boat that had probably been waxed no more than a couple of times in its life. I tried an 'all in one' combination cleaner, polish, and wax and was disappointed with the results. It just proves there is no substitute for doing things the right way.JD recommended their full polishing kit, but instead I tried their Total Buff and Total Shine products. Step 2 was Total Shine. I used it with an electric polisher and wool pads (and lots of elbow grease in a few tight areas the polisher didn't quite reach well) then followed up with paste wax. My neighbor thought I'd bought a new boat.
