I am looking for a referral of someone who can do a great job wet sanding and bringing gel-coat back to life.

Any recommendations' for talented people w/ in 2 hours from DFW?

Just purchased a 1990 boat that has been in a barn and the gel coat looks to be in great shape, under the grime. Excited to see how she polishes up!

Thanks!

After contacting them, not sure if the option will work.

Any skilled individuals out there who are interested in the work?

No Sir, the boat is from 1990.

I'd suspect the gel coat is rotten. To bring it back would require application of more gel coat.
