Thank you, as always!Orange peel is difficult to avoid. Making sure the surface is totally free of oil or wax is the usual prescription.
You're not going to make much progress with 1000 grit. I'd also suggest that you really don't want to create bumps & hollows at this stage... if you've been using a batten/longboard then tell me to shut up... but my suggestion is to use one and drop to 600 grit. Do this until the shiny spots (the low area) are ju-u-st starting to disappear. Then start shifting up in grit to 800, 1000, etc.
Your surface doesn't look that bad, frankly. Next time I refinish a boat I am going to ask YOUR advice!
I'll give it a go with the rougher grit.
