Summer sunshine brings with it damaging UV rays. The resulting oxidation leaves boats looking old and neglected. With the right tools, like Shurhold’s World’s Best Dual Action Polisher and a jar of Buff Magic, it’s simple to restore the deep, lustrous finish to paint, gelcoat and metal.

The World’s Best Dual Action Polisher is also one of the simplest to use. Ideal for DIYers, its 5” random orbital head quickly removes chalky oxidation without the damaging burns and swirls common with higher-rpm machines. A variable speed from 2,500–6,500 opm accommodates a wide range of tasks, like waxing and buffing. With its quickchange Velcro backing plate, switching pads is fast and easy.

Unlike palm-sized polishers, the World’s Best Dual Action Polisher is designed for comfort and efficiency. The softtouch D-handle adjusts to the ideal position and its gripping areas are ergonomically designed. A 20’ power cord with GFCI plug end provides the much-needed length to safely work on large projects, especially around water. Everything needed comes in the canvas storage bag, including a wrench and replacement brushes.

The other half of the recipe to achieve a professional finish is Shurhold’s Buff Magic. The compounding paste contains jeweler’s rouge abrasives that break down as it’s worked by hand or machine, becoming ever finer. The unique formula takes a surface from dull to ultra-glossy with very little effort. A video of the process using the World’s Best Dual Action Polisher is at bit.ly/DualActionPolisher.

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher costs $144.98. A 1.4 lb. jar of Buff Magic is $24.98, $59.98 for 4 lbs. and $129.98 for a 10 lb. pail.
