Hi,

I'm not sure it's possible, but I'd like to polish/ buff my '02 Getaway. There's also some heavier skuff marks on the bow of the hulls.

Does anyone have any experience with polyethylene repair/ buffing/ polishing?

Most of my research is telling me polyethylene is difficult if not impossible to polish, but I figured I'd throw this question out there for any experienced wisdom...

Thanks in advance.

Nick

We "Flame" the surface. This is done with a very wide propane torch flame like used to shrink wrap boats for winter storage. Would damage and stock on graphics though.
