OK, heard a lot of good things about Leverage...guess it's about time to give it a try. But, do you HAVE to apply by hand. I like using my Porter Cable buffer to apply it. Then remove by hand.

Restructure marine is by far the best I have used - hands down. Sorry but it was better then the leverage as well in my opionion. I still use the leverage on the dash and interior since is sprays on so easy

I have been using Wizards and Race Glaze for years for my business and think it is one of the best out there!!!! But, recently, I have tried Leverage and while it does not work everywhere for me, I fell it is a great product though I have notbeen able to test its longevity. I nw use Leverage in compliments with Wizards. But, for the average person doing a boat, you really can't beat the simplicity of Leverage. My poor old shoulders don't allow me to do things by hand anymore though...



Mothers...What Mothers are you using??? I did not know they made a wax for gel coat. if it is the automotive wax, it is a no-no to use it on gel coat.

No need to wax if you followed up the buffing with Supreme seal or the Shine Master.
