Default Finally identified a good boat Polish and Wax...

Took a lot of web surfing, talking to suppliers but I think I have finally identified a good product:

Fiberglass Boat Cleaner (No. 920)
http://www.collinitemarine.com/products.htm#920

Fiberglass Boat Wax (No. 925)
http://www.collinitemarine.com/products.htm#920

And to apply and buff the boat:

Variable-Speed Random Orbit Polisher 7424XP
http://www.autogeek.net/po.html

My entire day was spent polishing and waxing the boat, but it came out awesome. I can definitely recommend these products....

After waxing with Collinite Fiberglass Boat Wax (No. 925)



Sun is setting, but just look at that finish...



Problem: While I was polishing the hull, I noticed some Silicone Sealant where the deck and hull joins, and promptly polished it off....now we're taking on some water when the wake hits the lip

Will be busy this weekend, sealing it again

On another forum, someone also posted this....may be worth a try:

Quote:
Been using Colinite #885 paste wax for years. It give a much better finish than the #925 boat wax.

Apply a second coat about 3 weeks from now. Wet on, wet off. Apply and remove by hand. You can go back over it with a buffer but I prefer to do it by hand.
