DIY prep, antifoul, t-cut and polishing

Got to get cracking on the Tomahawk, looks a mess!!
Anyone got any good suggestions for

Good type of performance antifoul for hull and drives?
Do the drives have to be removed?

Best way to remove old antifoul on hull and legs?

Good products and process for t-cut/compound and polish to bring back lustre on old gel coat?

where can I get one of those professional polishers??

Oh dear, let the spending begin!

2-3 coats of Interspeed Ultra or similar, the cost will make you cry, but not as much as your aching arms will.

International also do an antifoul for drives, but this is normally done during the drive service!

Getting the old antifoul off is fun too, probably easiest to have it blasted off, although MDL do tend to get the hump over it, very messy and very expensive!

Any good cutting compound will make the gel shiny, but it probably won't last for long, Durabuild 2000 is a combined polish and cutter, give great results!

You can rent a polisher from most hire shops, but it will be cheaper to buy in the long run, £150+ for a decent one!

Thursday ain't it, have to see my parole officer in the morning, then it's "personal trainer" time in the afternoon.

Training is coming along really well, we now jog into Fordingbridge and get a Doner Kebab! a few more weeks and she'll be on 12" pizzas and a garlic bread with cheese!!

I ain't lost much weight but me trainers firming up nicely!





It wasn't my fault, jonnie fuller made me do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
