Buffing is an important part of yacht maintenance because it gets rid of small scratches, oxidation, and other flaws in the gel coat. By buffing, your yacht's original shine and luster can be brought back, making it look as good as new. But buffing is a tricky job that requires the right tools, skills, and knowledge. In this blog, we'll talk about what to expect when Swift Spirit buffs your yacht.
1. Getting a first look
Before the buffing process starts, our team will look at the outside of your yacht to figure out the best way to clean it. We will look for scratches, swirl marks, oxidation, and other flaws in the gel coat. Based on the evaluation, we will suggest the right buffing method and products to get the results you want.
The first step in buffing is to clean the outside of your yacht very well. We clean the gel coat by using products and tools that are good for the environment. This step is very important if you want the buffing process to work and the results to last.
3. Tape and guard
Next, we'll tape off areas that need to be protected during the buffing process, like windows, rub rails, and decals. This step is important to make sure that these areas don't get damaged by accident while buffing the gel coat.
We'll start buffing your yacht after we've cleaned and protected it. To get rid of scratches, oxidation, and other flaws in the gel coat, our skilled technicians use high-quality buffing pads and compounds. We use different compounds and pads on your yacht based on how bad the damage is and what kind of gel coat it has. We take our time to make sure that the outside of your yacht is perfect in every way.
After the buffing process is done, we will check the outside of your yacht to make sure we got the results we wanted. We will look for any flaws that are still there and fix them as needed. Our team is dedicated to giving you good results, and we won't finish buffing your yacht until we're sure it looks its best.
6. Coating with wax or ceramic
After the buffing is done, we suggest putting wax or a ceramic coating on the gel coat to protect it and keep its shine. When you wax the gel coat, you make a protective layer that keeps water away and keeps UV rays, salt, and other environmental factors from damaging the gel coat. Ceramic coating is more durable and gives the gel coat a stronger layer of protection. Both options will protect your yacht for a long time and make it easier to clean.
7. Last look and cleaning up
After waxing or ceramic coating the outside of your yacht, we will do a final check to make sure everything is perfect. We'll take off any tape or protective coverings and clean up any mess made by buffing. Our team's goal is to leave your boat in better shape than when we got there.
