    I use a buffing wheel with Meguria's Machine compound to do a good clean-up,then I really like the new line of Turtle Wax "ICE" line of waxes.

    I am sure you will get more advice over the next few days.

    Post some clear photos of what you have now.

    Just general clean and shine, or scratch and scrape repairs?

    What about the hull interior? How does that look?

    interior looks good as far as i am concerned..not an expert though..it was very clean when purchased from a guy who was a marine mechanic..engine, throttle cable, motor etc, looked really clean to me and my two brother in laws who both own ski's. the actual hull itself looks good to me maybe a little discoloration here and there from water etc. no major stains or evidence of oil, gas, etc. if that is what your getting at..maybe could use a good hot water and soap scrubbing and rinse of some kind. Outside just needs to be brightened up a bit..some scratches but mostly water spotted or oxidized look in some places. Look forward to the replies. Thnaks

    The gelcoat can be wetsanded with 800 grit and then rubbed out,if it's oxidized real bad. I did this on my MSX bottom with great results.
