I spoke with Robert M., who handles marine and pro stuff.

Robert said HD or regular compound can be used, but with several caveats:

1) it needs a rotary, not a DA
2) wool pad, then foam pad
3) if a dark colored finish, you'll want to follow compound with the Foam Pad Polish

Heavily oxidized may require two applications. Got any pix?

Thanks Forrest. Those were the same steps I was going to do. As for pictures, I'll be taking alot as I progress on the project. I'll post them when the boat arrives.
