I've been doing well getting compound and polish by 3M, Meguiar, and Menzerna on Amazon (sometime from third part suppliers on Amazon).

I've been buying Lake Country pads from Autogeek. They seem to run sales pretty regularly on weekends. They are one of several sites under the Palm Beach Motoring umbrella. I've seen one of the sister sites for Premium Boat Care mentioned on here as a source.

Do you recommend scrubbing what I can off the hull underwater at least once a week or something to stop what happened last summer? If everything comes off with toilet bowl cleaner I am assuming it will need to be waxed to get it back to how it was in the beginning of the summer? This was my first summer with it, it has always been stored inside before so I am trying to figure out the best approach going forward as the new owner.

Go to walmart and get a bottle of atwoods hull cleaner.. It'll do the trick.. Remember to wax the hell out if it afterwards.

A benefit of your habit is you caused me to stumble into a 10 percent discount they apparently offer people from the .com website. However, I've seen them run 20 percent off at least a couple of times in the past month. Exclusions apply to their discounts.
