Aluminum Surfaces & Trim Maintenance

Polishing the sides (unpainted) and gunwales of the boat can be incorporated into your cleaning schedule.

A low abrasive aluminum polish may be used to keep the sides and gunwales polished. Weldcraft recommends, "Mothers Mag Wheel Polish, Flitz Metal Polish" or a comparable product.

If heavy water spotting occurs a heavy machine rubbing compound may be used on unpainted surfaces. The compound is applied to the hull, then finished by buffing with a high speed electric buffer on a soft wool pad. The high shine factory polish is then possible by finishing with mothers mag wheel polish on a clean new wool pad.
