We began the 43' Catamaran restoration process by washing the boat with Nano Wash, a non-abrasive soap, to clean the surface before buffing.

The blue hull and white gel coat on the top side were in relatively good condition, but many areas suffered from hard water marks and oxidization. In order to correct this problem we went through a three step buffing process, including Glidecoat's Heavy Compound, Nano Compound (medium cut), and Nano Polish. The first buffing step, heavy compound, we used a rotary buffer with a clean wool pad to remove all water marks and oxidization. We then moved to Nano Compound with a foam pad to begin to smooth out the surface and restore the shine. Finally, we finished off buffing with a clean foam pad and Nano Polish to bring out more shine and ready the surface for our Nano Ceramic Top Coating.

Before beginning to coating process, we decontaminated all areas to be coated with Glidecoat's Surface Wipe, removing any dirt and residue.

Now we are ready to apply the final coating. We start by pouring a dime sized amount of coating onto the red application sponge. Working in 2’ by 2’ sections, we apply Glidecoat's Nano Ceramic Liquid Crystal onto the surface. When applied the surface will appear to be “sweating”, we then buff the area with a clean microfiber cloth, working the coating into the pores while removing any excess liquid from the surface. This process is completed across the entire boat. Once the first coat is completed, we repeat this step and apply a second coat of Glidecoat's Nano Ceramic Liquid Crystal.
