The owner of the 2006 Sea Ray - Sundancer reached to us for a solution to fading and inconsistency in the dark blue color of the hull caused by oxidization and severe water marks. Also, on the sun deck of the boat included non-skid, in which, is challenging to maintain and keep clean.

The boat is permanently docked here in South Florida and constantly exposed to the harsh sun and elements. The owner previously completed the boat detailing himself by applying traditional wax that could not hold up to these conditions and caused increased maintenance time. He was looking for professional boat detailing in West Palm Beach.
As a result, throughout the hull of the boat, you could easily see hard water marks in the pores.
We began the Sea Ray gelcoat restoration process by washing the boat with Nano Wash to completely clean and ready for the next step. The second step included using a medium cut compound with a rotary buffer at 900 rpm's to remove oxidization and hard water marks. In various areas throughout the boat, we had to repeat the compound several times to ensure the surface imperfections were properly removed.
The next step in the boat detailing process was to use Nano Polish with a foam pad at low speed. This product is unique because it helps to pull out stains that could not be removed with the cleaners and acids in the washing preparation. It also helped to further restore the shine.
Now comes the real transformation.
At this point we used Surface Wipe to wipe off all the areas to be coated. This step removes any further contaminants from the gelcoat and ensures we are working with a clean surface. With the surface now fully prepared and consistent we started the application of our nano coating.
By applying two coats of our liquid crystal, the coating will fill in all of the pores of the surface and after 8 hours of curing time, will create a protective barrier on the hull to prevent oxidization and hard water marks.
