Wax

I saw on the other site someone recommended using Woody Wax. I went online and found it. That stuff is awesome! It's not cheap but works very well. It's a company in Fla. Check it out.

Nothing beats 3Ms Finessee It II. Goes on smooth and buffs to a great shine. I bought a high speed buffer before my vacation over the fourth and I can't believe the difference it makes. Hand apply the polish/wax, remove with the terry cloth at low speed and buff at high speed.

Bill,

What's a bottle of that run? The Woody's was close to $30. It's like an aersol. You spray it on and use a damp cloth to spread it and then buff. Plus it leaves a high gloss BUT, it's not slick. It's made especially for the marine industry.

I’m getting ready to wash and wax up my boat. Yesterday I used the Star bright hull cleaner on and below the waterline (had some funk from vacation) I don’t have the wax yet but when I talk to Spectrum today I am going to ask for a recommendation

My dealer recommended McGuire's and that's all I've ever used. How does Tim say it? "Get's 'er done." (grammar arranged for context).

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.

Ok

I just got off of the phone with Spectrum and they said any good carnauba wax will work fine..

On a sad note, my color “Blue Atlantic” is not available in the “repair kit” size for $15, but is available in the quart size for 65.. Anyone want to go in on a can of liquid gel coat with me?? (6 month shelf life) ??

The guy at Spectrum also told me,

to get rid of fade use “fiberglass rubbing compound” and wax after that.

Woody Wax makes a product to restore gel coat that works well. It's like a wax, put it on for a few minutes and it buffs off. http://www.woody-wax.com/
