Practical Sailor Searches for The Best Gelcoat Restorer
Seven acrylic coatings for gelcoat are tested on a severely oxidized hull and rated on application and gloss.
Acrylic fiberglass coatings are a practical alternative to use on your sailboats gel coat when waxes and polishes wont revive that gelcoat shine. Practical Sailor tested seven new acrylic hull restorers designed to get rid of oxidation: Higley Fiberglass Restorer, Klasse High-Gloss Sealant Glaze, NewGlass2 (NuGlass2), Poli Glow, Star brite Glass Cote, Vertglas, and Presto gelcoat rejuvenator. The top performers were easy to apply and left the old, porous hull with a mirror-like shine.
