I removed all the stripes did a little gelcoat repair here and there and ran over the hull with presta cutting creme and this stuff worked great! as you can see the difference where i stopped to take the pic. the green is just some masking tape i threw on to keep the blue bottom paint out of my buffing pad

Thanks guys it has been a ton of work so far, cleaning the cabin alone took forever it was pretty dirty but it came out great! plus all the other little things that eat up time like oil changes, fuel filters, impellers and just going over everything to make sure it is working properly. I wanted to start fresh as its a new to me boat and i didnt have any background on it whats so ever. there is still a few things id like to do interior wise like some of the wood etc but some of it may have to wait untill fall or next spring i dont want to miss out on too much fishing for a little cosmetic repair

the rigid leds are are great lights.i have a set on my radar arch to light up the front and 3 on the back to light up off to the sides of the boat and the deck.they look good and are built like a tank.i have friends that run them on offroad trucks and they will take just about any abuse you can put them through short of smashing them with a hammer:thumb:built in the usa too:thumb:
