We purchased our 2020 NC 895 last fall and it came from the previous owner scuffed in a few places. Does anyone have any recommendations for touching up the blue hull? Also any recommendations for the upcoming season, wash/wax materials? Unable to add any pictures to the post from my phone. Thank you in advance for the help. LB & JY
OK. You should contact Jeanneau to find the gelcoat color match and you can match it from there from several gelcoat manufacturers. If there are no deep scratches, you can use a fine to medium compound, then polish. Maguirer has several we use topside.
I think boat owners inquired in this forum about the colour code of the famous blue. But for some reason I did not see replies up to now. My dealer promised to learn but could not. May be because of the Covid. Finally I tried some matching blue spray from the local market for minor touch work. I think it is all right now. Mine is 2020 MF 795, probably the blue colour is the same with 895. I am hopeful that we may learn the answer this time. I may be wrong but it looks to me as if there is a special blue paint sprayed over gel coat.
You should be able to get it from your dealer. I just contacted mine and was told they sell it by the quart and I will need MEKP and surface seal to properly harder the gel coat. The dealer is looking up my hull ID to ensure they get me the right color.
I’m waiting on the details; cost and delivery time, but I will let you know once I receive it.
Hi Jolaw Just go to West Marine or any marine supply (or Amazon) and buy/order a gelcoat repair kit. I did this for a previous boat and had excellent results. The hardest part was matching the color, but with some trial and error, I got it perfect. Easy to mix and use. Wet Sand with 800 grit then 1000 then 2000 grit. Polish with a fiberglass formulated product and, voila, it looks perfect and I can barely tell the repair was done.
Hi Jolaw! Congratulations on your new purchase. For general cleaning/maintenance of the hull and deck, I like the Shurhold line and their very informative website concerning usage of their products. You can find them on Amazon and I have links here: mvorca.net/gear
