Best cleaner for hull and interior fiberglass

First weekend with newly obtained 2013 X30. Any recommendations for best cleaning product for routine wipe downs to make the black and blue hull sparkle like it did when I picked it up. Lots of water spots not coming off that weren't there Friday afternoon.

I like water and vinegar but it does strip the wax so you need to be vigilant about regular wax. I also use micro fibre towels to the water and vinegar off.

For regular maintenance between trips I use Meguiar's Xpress wax. Price isn't bad, only takes a very light mist so a gallon lasts forever. Wipes surface water spots and off easily and rather than strip the wax it adds a little protection and helps water bead up and roll off. Makes the black on my x2 look like a mirror.

Iíve become a fan of Boat Candy Speed Gloss. Spray on, wait 15-20 seconds and wipe with microfiber towel. After repeated uses the shine gets even better, and my boat is 28 years young. Turtle Wax-Wax and Dry was my go-to product, itís cheap and does a really good job but doesnít remove water spots quite as well. I donít wipe down every time, so the Speed Gloss gets the nod for dried on water spots.

My List:

Boat Bling - Every time she comes out of the water - Gel coat inside & out - Also use it on the windshield
Babes Seat Soap - to clean the vinyl - 2 times a year, or as needed
3M - 303 coating, after vinyl clean
Wax - Pretty much any 100% carnauba wax - Mid & end of season - I like Woodys liquid or Collinite Paste - Not sold on the ceramic coating snake oil!
