I bought Fountain of Youth totally buff after reading posts by glassdave. Wow my boat looks like new and stuff is easy to use for a first timer.
Thanks Dave!

Good thread. Always good to keep up on current products. Question I have is Ive always used the traditional old school variable speed Mikita. Using both the wool and polish pads job depending. My current project is 12 meter that the deck and sides are in need however not bad at all for the age. Should I go the the orbital and foam pads for the ease or would it wind up taking much longer?

Im pretty sure im going to use the FOY. Given the size and time Id rather not have to use a 3 step process.

do you use the wool pad on both the 1000 And 2000.
