    Default Bottom Maintenance

    This is a project that I have put off for years. I had my trailer sandblasted and painted this month so I figured the time for buffing below the waterline had finally come. Pics are after using 3M rubbing compound and Meguiars polish. I've yet to add the Meguiars wax. Pretty happy with it so far!

    Shiny! The bottom looks so good I need to do the sides now.

    OK folks . . . . . introducing the new 2021 Supra Hovercraft Boat. Operates on land or sea. Does not use gas, so Joe Biden and the nut-pack will be happy.

    A quick update. Trailer is finished .. may as well be a new one. Sandblast and epoxy paint, new brake actuator, new brake lines, new brake backing plates, new bearings and races, new wiring and led lights, new guide posts, new bunks and new gatorstep fender pads. I started stripping decals, buffing and polishing this weekend. New decals on the way thanks to Daniel!

    Beautiful!

    Got a couple questions...First, how are you lifting the boat with nothing under the hull? Then, what kind of hull finish did you use?

    The boat was suspended by overhead shop cranes in the pic. I blocked it up before I got under it. Meguiars has a 3 part marine restoration product.
