Lots of vinegar/ water users here. I use speed shine from Griots. But I don't always wipe it down when I take it out of the water.

Arizona hard water baked on a black boat at 110 degrees...white vinegar is the only thing that will completely remove the spots.

This year I switched to Driven, which is sold in a concentrate and makes a gallon, so the price is great. So far I like their products, but only time will tell as far as spots go.

Vinegar/water is the key. If you want, hit it with babes spray wax after. Then once a season I use Fleetwax. The boat looks like the first day I got it. Crappy phone pic.

Damp towel here.

If water spots are a problem, vinegar/water works well. But you'll need to wax more regularly.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm with "tx" here. I use a terry cloth or microfiber cloth that stays in the boat for only one reason. Wipe down. After that I would back up a few steps with a and admire the view.

I tried vinegar/water but honestly can not stand the smell. So I switched to Babes.
