I'm with "tx" here. I use a terry cloth or microfiber cloth that stays in the boat for only one reason. Wipe down. After that I would back up a few steps with a and admire the view.

Auto Magic Hydro Shine with a wet microfiber towel. Works great!

We use Babe's boat Brite outside and 303 protectant inside for everything, every time the boat comes out of the water. SPF for the upholstery. 303 fabric guard for the Bimini and carpet twice a year. http://www.303products.com/

This thread is really interesting, I am in UK I have a 2005 X7 with an all black hull. Water spots are a nightmare all over the boat but particularly on the top surfaces. Its a fresh water lake but quite a high calcium/limescale content.The boat is on a lift when not in use.
The products you are referring to like Babes and Rat Juice are not available over here.
I polish it once maybe twice a year with a product called Mer which is sold for cars boats etc.
The use of water and vinegar intrigues me. I know that using water/vinegar on house windows when cleaning stops smearing etc. When used on a boat after skiing, is it just the same effect ie. Cleans the boat and dries out leaving no smears or droplets and then avoids water marks or does the application of water/vinegar have an "after effect" for the next session in the water.

What sort of mix do you use. ( ie. Percentage vinegar to water?

I'm in South Florida and all the fresh water here has limestone around it so lots of spots. I used a 3 part cleaning solution- one vinegar to one water to one CLR/Lime Away. Works extremely well if you can get your hands on some CLR or Lime-Away over there.

jbkriss: thanks for taking the time to respond. Does it just clean off the exixting spots and/or offer any protection against the next lot of spots
regards
