Funny you mentioned the smell of Babes. It was one of the other reasons I didn't want to switch either. Makes wiping it down so enjoyable. The boat bling hot sauce doesn't smell like chemical that much either

Same here.

Does anyone use 303 protectant for this purpose? Just curious cause I have been debating between it and Boat Bling Hotsauce. I like the idea that 303 has a high uv protection.

It looks like i will try out the Boat Bling Hotsauce. I ordered a part for my trailer from Pacific Trailers last week which was $149, the order total needed to be $150 to get free shipping, so i added the Hotsauce not knowing anything about it. I tried a little out this morning before work and it looked really good!

Does anyone have any suggestions to get tar off the hull? I got a few spots on the boat pulling it to the lake this weekend.

Also, I only use microfibers on my boat.

the 303 on the fiberglass will streak everywhere from my experiences. The boat bling has a bit of uv protect in it as well

Hard water here in Central Texas. I use Babes Water Spot Remover then follow with Babes Boat Bright. (May try the Boat Bling Hot Sauce - always looking for a better mousetrap)
