Your boat is made in layers. The outside layer is clear gelcoat. Under the clear gelcoat is the sparkly metal flake that is also called poly flake. There is only so much gelcoat on any boat. If you don’t maintain it regularly, you are going to have an oxidation problem sooner or later.
Even though the damage to your fiberglass boat may appear simple on the surface, quite often the damage is much more serious in nature.
On metal flake boats especially, you can see when a problem is occurring when you begin to see the metal flake turning silver. A metal flake is simply that, a piece of metal that is painted. If it becomes oxidized, you have lost the bright paint job on the flakes of metal.
There’s no other paint job that will restore the gloss and original beauty of your boat like metal flake. But it also is one of the toughest paint jobs to repair.
