Finished waxing the 1999 3700 SCR all by hand using 3M high shine wax a couple weeks ago. Every year I do this it reminds me of why I never want a bigger boat. Typically takes me 5 days by hand. I use Woody Wax on the non Skid and all over, then hand wax all the smooth surfaces. The job is never complete until all the vynal has been cleaned and treated. Then it is off to winterizing this year I put in three way valves to at the hot water heater to bypass around it (as it gets drained to avoid the pink stuff taste) and on just after the fresh water tank before the waterpump. This becomes a quick hook up to my antifreeze tank for a quick and complete flush with anti freeze.

Deanh ...I finally after about 30 years of waxing by hand have learned how to use an electric polisher. Before I had wax flying all over the the place. Marine 31 has some great how to do's on their website. Gosh does that make everything so much easier and you get a much better shine too. Just bought a dual action polisher at harbor freight can't wait to use it...

Nice looking boat!

Roger
