Is it safe to take a buffer to a waverunner?
Wanted to buff the entire waverunner, hull included. Is it safe to use a buffer on them? I have some white marks on the hull from my drive on docks that I'm hoping I can buff off. This for a 2010 FX SHO and FZS.

Same technique as a car.
If you know how to use it without leaving burn marks.

you'll want to watch out for any edges where getting too ambitious will result in the los of finish. Frankly, I'd do this by hand to avoid any problems..or pay a pro to do it. If you mess up..it's not an inexpensive fix compared tp [aying a pro $10-$12 a foot to detail your ski.

It's pretty difficult to burn through gel coat but if it's paint i'd be careful

It should be fine. Yamaha uses a urethane paint(no clearcoat). It's a pretty tough finish. Just don't use a pad that's too aggressive. I had some hazing in the paint below the fuel fill on my SHO from gas always overflowing when filling up at the pump. I buffed it out no problem with a light compound.

Mine are older but buffed them both with fine compound foam pad medium speed with professional buffer, the gp is painted and I had no probs. i do have experience but honestly I never felt like I needed to ease up on either ski.

I buff mine all the time...no problems...i use swirl and haze remover to get rid of scratches caused by tree branches , dock rubs, etc.
When I drilled out a 2 inch hole in the top deck for more air , the 2 inch plug i removed looked to be solid color all the way through.
