Should I be using a machine to polish? I have enough trouble climbing under the boat on a roller boat to polish and wax, I cannot imagine dealing with a machine and a cord that will get hooked on something as soon as I get under my boat.

If the weather holds this weekend I was planning on polishing inside and out this weekend and vacuuming all the carpets, etc. Just did my truck with Zymol today by hand.
I only use mine on the boat once a year to do a clean, polish, wax process. Besides that I do just like you do.
