PMC Compound Reviews
PRESTA Marine PMC Complete Compound 
The PMC range is the newest and most efficient compound to remove P600 and finer sand scratches and heavy oxidation. It combines the original, heavy aggressive Presta SuperCut compound with a Polish, producing a combination of unprecedented cut and high gloss performance. It contains no waxes, fillers and silicones and is water-based for easy cleanup. 

The PMC Complete Compound can be utilized with either a white compound or yellow polishing wool pad on either Paint or Gel coat surfaces. Remember the compound does create dust, so wash afterwards with a light amount of PH balanced boat soap. Then follow-up with the PMC Finishing Polish for that super slick surface, prior to applying your preferred wax, sealer or polymer. Ideal machine buffer speed is between 2.5 and 3.0 on a Makita Rotary buffer.
PMC Finish Polish Reviews
PRESTA Marine PMC Finishing Polish 
This is the newest addition to the PMC range of marine products that uses innovative, diminishing abrasives that polish the paint or gel coat surface for a flawless, swirl-free finish. It is an advanced all-in-one, single-step machine polish and swirl remover to be used after compounding. This product creates an exceptional, deep shine on dark colored paint or gel coat. 

The PMC Finishing Polish can be utilized with either a yellow or green polishing pad on either Paint or Gel coat surfaces. Alternatively, use your preferred foam pad. Ideal machine buffer speed is between 2 and 2.5 on a Makita Rotary buffer.

UV Creme Reviews
Presta UV Crème wax 
In the harsh, humid and hot conditions, such as those in South Florida, generally all professional grade waxes purchased from your local Marine store will provide UV protection from anywhere from 8 weeks to 12 weeks. Obviously there are exceptions to every rule. However, by minimizing the amount of PH balanced soap you use and reduce the regularity of boat washes to say once a month, you can get a longer lasting shine and UV protection on fiberglass, gel coat and painted surfaces in one easy step.  

Presta’s UV Crème wax produces the best results after machine compounding and/or polishing, where any oxidation and dullness has been removed to leave a slick finish for ease of application. The wax can be applied and then left on the surface for 15 minutes or more, so when buffing off by hand with a terry cloth or microfiber the amount of wax left on the cloth is minimized. 
Sea Shield
Sea-Shield Heavy Cut #1
Sea-Shield Heavy Cut #1 

This compound was designed to remove heavy oxidation, moderate 1000 grit sand paper marks and scratches, plus heavy chalk residues from both painted and unpainted gel coat surfaces. 

For best results and to minimize swirl marks, follow with Sea-Shield®Cut & Polish #2 to restore to a full gloss finish. Should be utilized with a white wool compound pad on either paint or gel coat surfaces.

 Ideal machine buffer speed is between 2.5 and 3.5 on a Makita Rotary buffer. For heavy oxidation or deeper grit marks the Presta PMC Complete Compound works more efficiently and will require less passes of the buffer.
Sea Shield Cut and Polish #2
Sea Shield Cut and Polish # 2
Sea Shield Cut and Polish # 2 

This product removes light 1500 grits and paper haze and scratches on gel coat and painted surfaces, although I have found it is more efficient and effective on the former.

It also removes light oxidation, fine scratches, and chalk residue. Depending on the age of the surface, it can create some swirl marks, so it is designed to be followed with Sea-Shield ®Swirl Remover # 3 to finish. 

Can be utilized with either a white wool compound or yellow polishing pad on either paint or gel coat surfaces. 

Alternatively, use your preferred foam pad. Ideal machine buffer speed is between 2.0 and 3.0 on a Makita Rotary buffer.

Sea-Shield Exhaust Guard
Sea-Shield Exhaust Guard
Sea-Shield Exhaust Guard

This product is a powerful polymer-based surface sealant designed to seal and protect new and older paint and gel coat finishes from black streaks, engine exhaust, industrial fallout, salt air, acid rain, and UV rays. It produces a deep, wet look shine and ultra-smooth finish. Curing time is 24 hours.

Designed with patient professional detailers in mind, as it takes approximately twice the time to apply and buff as ordinary off-the-shelf wax. 
However, the upside is that with two coats it can provide protection for up to six months.

A dime sized quantity of Exhaust Guard is applied to each 2ft by 2ft section. 
Then pass over the area a couple of times using an orbital polisher and black foam pad, at between 4 and 5 speed.
Finally, using a microfiber cloth, wipe over the area to remove an excess product. Alternatively, you can buff off the complete area by hand using a microfiber. As with regular wax, two coats is recommended for maximum protection.
