2011 23' International

I now have a good idea of how much work it would take to strip clear coat and then polish my 2010 23 foot international. What I am curious about is what it means for the future. Do you need to store it differently? Does it require a complete re polish once or twice a year or is maintenance a more simple process? I guess I want to know what I'm getting myself into, not just this year but down the road.

If it isn't stored inside it will need frequent maintenance to keep up the shine. If it is stored inside it will need less frequent maintenance, but still will fade if not kept up. The shine lasts longer than you might expect, but will eventually return to its former state.
