    I have a 2011 Tracker Grizzly 1448 Mod V jon boat that has sat most of years on our small lake. Due to continual sun exposure, the green tracker paint has severely oxidized. Does anyone have a way to return the paint color without removing the paint? I've included a picture taken since removing boat from water. Will have to clean pond scum off bottom as well.
    This boat is in great shape except for oxidation and pond scum, and I need to sell it. Any help restoring the paint without re-painting appreciated.

    thanks, Jim

    You can try wet sanding the hull with some 1200 or 2000 grit sandpaper and then rub it out. Try a small section first. Looks pretty bad.
