Dual Action Polisher For Boats

Polishing a boat is fun and satisfying when spectacular results shine through. The Dual Action Polisher and Buff Magic from Shurhold Industries makes a boat sparkle like new.

Buff Magic is scientifically formulated with jeweler’s rouge to be a multi-purpose buffing and polishing cream. With each pass, the gentle abrasives break down, creating a compound that transforms a very dull finish to ultra glossy. Also ideal for metal, Buff Magic removes oxidation, gelcoat staining, surface rust, tarnish and Plexiglass scratches.

The Dual Action Polisher features quick-change pads with Velcro backing and comes with a 20-foot power cord.

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher costs $149.98 and a 22 oz. can of Buff Magic costs $28.98
