View Full Version : What kind of wax & vinyl conditioner?

01-14-2008, 10:29 PM
I just bought my first MasterCraft and was wondering what brand of wax and vinyl conditioner you guys and gals use. Is there any other cleaning products that you can suggest?

Thanks for the help in advance.

I'm new, so forgive me if others have better suggestions. However I use 303 on vinyl and klasse all in one wax (sealant) for auto, boat, and plane. Couldn't be happier with results. I buy detailing products from www.topoftheline.com. Hope this helps.

303, babes boat bright each wipe down, Meguiars premium boat wax 2 times a year. I might try babes products for the vinyl, heard good things....

I use 303 and Babe's for the vinyl and have good results.

After every trip in the water I use babe's cleaner and wax on the outside of the boat for a quick wipedown.

303 for the vinyl and 3m Marine wax, oh yeah and distilled water for the wipe down!

303 and whatever wax is on sale. I'm saving for my next upgrade.

303 for vinyl. The best boat wax I have come across is Collinite fleetwax. Use the #870 Heavy Duty Cleaner first (it is a liquid cleaner to clean and prepare the surface) Follow up with #885 Heavy Duty Fleetwax (this is a paste wax) I can't remember how I found out about this, but I have used these products for 2 years now and have been amazed with the results and the longevity of the shine that it gives. My boat stays in the water all summer and when I take it out in the fall, any growth on the bottom wipes right off and it still beads water. I have had no gelcoat blistering-thus far. I clean and wax the bottom and sides once each year and it seems to be working. I have several of my friends using this on their boats also and they swear by it as well.
