    New X14 owner looking for some advice following the process Brian outlined. How many of each pad is needed to complete the entire boat? I assume you do each step on the entire boat and then move to the next step? I have a Dewalt 849x. Can I go over decals and raised lettering for all steps or need to do these areas by hand?

    Just compound and polish. I guess wet sand wasn't the right term. I'm a complete newbie at this! The drain plug is an underwater LED light and it came with a T fitting so I don't lose the drain function.

    I am in the process of wet sanding the transom of my '99 205v. The oxidation wasn't bad but you could tell the PO had it in a boat slip where it had some prolonged sun exposure since the rest of the gelcoat is in much better condition. Using a Porter Cable 7424xp polisher, chemical guys foam pads, and meguiars ultimate compound. Started off with an orange pad and it is looking much better. Going to follow up with some polish (also meguiars) and then wax. Went ahead and put the new decals on since I didn't think putting them on over a coat of wax would be a good idea. Here's a before pic:

    Would this method above work to bring the orange of the bottom of the hull back to the same color on the sides.
    Yes it will.

    No not the swap. It's a secret lake.
