Anyone have a good fix for the yellowing?

I've never used it, but heard a lot of good things about the Malco product.

Malco worked Incredibly Awesome.

Just be sure to rinse the vinyl and stitching.

Thank you all for the feedback. So I'll have to order some stuff from the states to be shipped over.

Cheers, XStar08

After searching for months for 303 vinyl cleaner, I accidentally found it while wondering round a auto shop.

I'm pretty excited now to get home and see how it goes, my white trim is already pretty clean, but everything can always be cleaner.

To the guys who are using tooth brushes to clean have you considered using a small nail brush? Will probably save a lot of time

Mild detergent, warm water, and a soft brush will a pretty great job on most vinyl. Follow up with the protectant of your choice. I use Vinylex, wipe it off, wait 10 minutes, and buff with a soft cloth. Takes the greasy feel out and looks great.

My local dealer swears by ZEP. However, it looks like I may need to see if they have an extra can of it they will sell me. This one is priced by the case.

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.
