i like babe's seat cleaner better but the hot sauce in my opinion works much better than babes. removes water spots the first time and leaves a nice finish.

now shipping is a whole another issue!!!

I used to use Boat Bling, but after a lot of reading on the topic was told that it was just a mixture of Pacific Produx Blue Mist Detailing Mist and vinegar. If this is the total truth, I do not know, but I my sources make the story believable.

So now, I buy a gallon of Blue Mist and a gallon of $3 distilled vinegar to make 2 gallons of spray. I cannot tell a difference between my spray and my buddy's Hot Sauce or Performance Boat Candy.

I just ran out of vinyl protectant and spent some time looking over the various products for the first time in a couple of years. I settled on Vinylex. I have used it before. It goes on a little greasy, but if you wait 10 minutes and give it another once over with a soft cloth, it smooths out really nice. What's more, the stuff has UV protection of 60 SPF (I think 303 is 40 SPF). Not sure what kind of protection Babe's has, but 60 SPF strikes me as pretty impressive.

Also picked up some Babe's Boat Bright for in between two times annual waxings.

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 am with ttu, I prefer babes seat soap and seat saver. So I just order babes boat bright as well. I am ashamed to say it but its the smell of the babes that wins me over as well.


The hot sauce is def better cleaner regarding water spots after a long day on the water, but again for me just easierto get all my stuff in one spot. I still use good old vinegar and water over the weekends when my boat is in an out a ton and then finish off Sunday night with the Back Ws boat bright.



If I were to order different stuff and go with what I think is the best here is my take.

-Hot sauce as exterior boat wipe down.
-Exquisite as daily vinyl cleaner
-Malco or Totally Awesome as a deep vinyl cleaner. I prefer the Totally Awesome as it doesn't seem to be as toxic to my nose and hands.
-Babes seat saver as the protectant......303 is just to slimy/ slippery for me and it attracts dust like crazy.



Again tho I prefer to one stop shop si I just grab a load of babes every season. And keep a bottle of Totally Aweome and Vin n Water handy

Also, for cleaning vinyl, this is what my local dealer uses. I have not used it, but have seen them work magic with it on other boats. Not sure if there is anything better.

The issue with vinegar and distilled water is the vinegar strips off all protectants and wax. Hot Sauce does not, it removes water spots, AND it leaves a nice finish with some polymer wax. Carnauba waxes won't stay on a boat splashing around in the water.

My product stable (although I always seem to monkey around and buy stuff)

During the wipe down, Hot Sauce.
Stubborn water spots, Hot sauce or Babes Spot ... After Babes don't forget the wax.

I also like the Babes Spray wax for periodic application
meguiars quick wax detailed is good too .....

I have really become a fan of hot sauce since the 1st Buckeye Bash, when Calls311 got us all some samples.
