I know this has been discussed before but I also know that pwople are always changing products etc.

What are you using for boat wipe down? I currently just wipe down completely with a towel inside and out but am thinking of using some sort of a quick detailer for extra shine.

I do the same thing, and then wax occasionally. But what do I know, I am too old and out of touch according to one reader.

Try out this stuff... truly incredible!




The Flagship of the line: "HOT SAUCE." This is your one step solution to clean your when you pull out of the water after a long day of boating. "HOT SAUCE" is a thin, ready to use liquid designed for use on Fiberglass, Plastic, Chrome, Glass and all painted surfaces (cars too). "HOT SAUCE" will easily remove dust, fingerprints, hard water spots, dirt and mineral deposits. It also removes all buffing and polishing residue without leaving any films or colorant behind. "HOT SAUCE" has enough power to remove the hardest water spots with just a simple spray on, wipe off process and WILL NOT strip your current wax. "HOT SAUCE" contains special waxes to provide a streak free, static clean feeling with a brilliant shine…and NO water spots.

What does it smell like?

Do any of these sprays provide UV fade protection? Babes, Meguiars, Hot Sauce?

I also just wipe with a towel and occasionally wax, but would like to protect my finish more now that I got it buffed out.

shep, according to babes site, yes it does provide uv protection.

smells good to.

hot sauce is a mixture that contains vinegar.

I have said this before, Spray Nine is great stuff, cuts gunk from fiberglass and makes it shine and is great for the interior....

I only use cheap bottled water (no tap water) when I wipe it down the van and the boat in the driveway before putting them away after a good days fun and also prior to boat judging.

Babe's Boat Bright all the way...purchased it by the gallon jug. Their Spot Solver and Seat Soap is great stuff too.

Just a damp towel here. Today, the weather was looking so nasty, I barely had time to get the cover on. Will wipe down extra good tomorrow.

I use a mist of Meguires Quick Clean, seems to work well. It's hard to find around here. I was forced into switching to 3M once, but IMO it didn't work as well. I would like to try Babe's someday!!

We wipe the boat down with a Water Sprite from NAPA. It's quick and easy.

50% of the time I just wipe down with towels and the other 50% is a wipedown with Babe's boat bright.

It really depends on how clean the boat is when it comes out of the water.

I have a ton of Black Magic Quick Detailer (smells like grape Kool Aid!) that I got for free on rebate at Menards. Every time I pull out, I spray it on the wet boat and dry off with Absorbers (a kind of chamois that absorbs water well). Makes the boat look great!

We use distilled water and vinegar potion- because of all the black we got lots of water spots. I will start using more of this though- use it on all of my rigs and its amazing.

Towel inside and out every use. Spray wax 20 min once a week for fun.
