    No worries. If the scratch is gone with 2000 it just needs a little polish. You can do it by hand but it's a lot easier if you use a power tool. Nothing fancy, the Harbor Freight polishers work great. I use a standard variable speed polisher but some people prefer the DA (Dual Action) versions. Just personal preference. They are on sale frequently and you can usually get one for around $30.

    You'll also need two kinds of pads and two kinds of compounds. Start with a wool pad and some cutting compound, this takes the scratches out.

    Once the scratches are gone (it doesn't take very long) switch to a foam pad and a good polish. As #Jgorm and others have mentioned, there are several good brands of product.

    Also, whenever you sand, make sure you sand it wet. Keep it wet, dip it in water frequently or hold a hose over it and use a block to sand with. Don't try to sand by holding the paper in your hands.

    I have the 54dv and mine did not have detailed charts of Bimini, I had to buy a card. Part #VUS513L. With the card, beautiful charts of the Bahamas and the Florida keys

    That changes to ice, then snow, then driving snow with wind.. Then sleet... Then rain that puts a nice hard coat of ice on top of it all. Two days later... Pollen attacks! #ncweather..
