Lots of vinegar/ water users here. I use speed shine from Griots. But I don't always wipe it down when I take it out of the water.

This year I switched to Driven, which is sold in a concentrate and makes a gallon, so the price is great. So far I like their products, but only time will tell as far as spots go.

Vinegar/water is the key. If you want, hit it with babes spray wax after. Then once a season I use Fleetwax. The boat looks like the first day I got it. Crappy phone pic.

Damp towel here.

If water spots are a problem, vinegar/water works well. But you'll need to wax more regularly.

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.

I tried vinegar/water but honestly can not stand the smell. So I switched to Babes.

Babes spray wax every time she comes out of the water. Works great, keeps a nice, clean shine all year.

I hose down with clean water and a microfiber rag, then spray the whole boat down with Rat Juice gloss and dry with the same microfiber rag. Smells great, shines great. Once a month I hose down and use Rat Juice spray on wax...spray the whole boat down then rub in and off with microfiber rag, smells even better!!! I'm in dirty river water so I have to hose down at least first though, you lucky bums who dont have to do that!!! Never had water spots though, maybe that the tradeoff.

I have nothing bad to say about Babe's (used it for years), I think Rat Juice produces a bit more shine and smells better though.
