    How to buff sun faded black gel coat and good hull cleaner suggestions?

    I bought a nice 2017 SXR 1500 yesterday for a great deal but it sat out in the sun it looks like for 2 years and has some light oxidation and also sat in the water for some time and the bottom hull needs a deep cleaning. What do you all suggest for both? Anything around the house I can use to clean the bottom of the hull?

    I've done that. The problem is that the fading and cloudiness will return. I don't know how many times you can give it the heat treatment.
