Leigh Olson has owned the Coastal Bay Action Craft since 2014, but hasn’t been able to restore the boat. He tried multiple products with little luck, but following Glidecoat completing a full restoration and application of our Professional Grade Ceramic Coating, Leigh couldn’t believe the difference.

The black hull had faded, adding a halo around the old boat name. The hull also suffered from multiple fine scratches and fender rash. In addition, the gel coat throughout the hull and topsides was chalky and sun-damaged.
Leigh had tried compounding and waxing with several products but was not able to remove the white haze on the hull, nor could he get a consistent shine or color. The gel coat on the hull and topsides had also become very porous. There were clear stains from dirt, rust, and fish blood throughout the deck. The staining had become so bad the owner gave up on trying to keep the boat clean.
The Glidecoat restoration process started with an acid wash of the entire boat to remove all the stains and dirt. Once completed the boat was then taken through a four-step compound and polishing process that brought the gel coat back to a smooth consistent surface.
Two coats of Glidecoat Ceramic Coating were applied to the gel coat and hull, restoring the color and shine.
