So two questions I guess.

1. Should I wax the boat again this spring given that I did it last fall?

2. Is there any remedies to keeping the boat clean while being on a lift (w/ a canpoy)? I will practice the drying off after every use but not sure what products are safe on the lake. I want to be eco-friendly!
I'm pretty sure most of the products are going to be eco friendly being that they are being put on a boat that will be in the water. I wax once a year, and use babes everytime after use. With that combo, what ever gets on the boat wipes right off.

Babes has products just for the skins, or I use 303 on them. Both are good products

I make my own concoction of 1 Part Blue Mist to 1 part Distilled White Vinegar.

I get 2 gallons of product for ~$20 and it works better than any product I have tried... Including Babes.

Wax at first of season then wipe down's with sham-wow which is my favorite on board towel great on the seats when the kids are in and out even have them sit on one at first--they do absorb tons of water ring out easy and dry fast!

Wash it down with lake water each weekend once it's back on the lift for good, then either Babes or Meguirers ... That silver metal flake still shines. I wax it at least twice a years too

Wish I could add a smily face

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