  • gel coat on transom

    last summer while at the wakeboard tour at table rock I had a tige tied off the back of my transom on my x2. well I didn't see how the guy tied it up but turns out I have marks where the rope swayed back and forth leaving marks on the black gel coat. I have tried to wax the area and it does not help.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    I'd try some rubbing compound and a wool pad, or something similar. I have some black gel and have done this with success.

      thanks for the info. I did use some turtle wax compound I had here at the house with a sponge applicator and it didn't do a whole lot. maybe the wool pad would help.

        A high speed buffer with a wool pad will be your best and most effective method. A good gel coat compound is key but the heat generated by the machine in conjunction with the compound delivers the results you would be most pleased with.

          Collinite 920 and a wool pad on your buffer.

                    This is the one I have and it works fine, but just remember to start out slow, then work your way up to speed.

                        thank you everyone for you help. The buffer worked great and i was able to get the marks out of the transom gelcoat.

                        oh and i put the girlfriend to work after i got done putting oil on the platform.

                        have a picture but unable to download.
