Armor All is BAD!
It literally sucks the life out of plastics.

Look at 303 Products. Great selection of protectors and cleaners for Vinyl and Fabrics. Recommended by Skiers Choice and Sunbrella.

I checked 303's website and cant seem to find the 303 rubber cleaner for my rub rails which product is it and then the only wax I can find is for cars and i was told never to use auto wax on the gel coat. So am I just missing something?

Never use car wax on the gelcoat?!?

I don't know bout ever 1 else here, but I got to tell you, I use it and it seems to work pretty good. Everything above the water line

I was told by a salesperson that the car wax wasnt good for gel coats. I wasnt sure so i just went with the marine wax i normally use the DP Teflon wax on my truck. But on the boat Ive been using the megulars premium marine wax. But like I said I wasnt sure and my boat dealer is little or no help so thats why Im here

303 is sold at West Marine in Fife. Not cheap but the best.

I use a car wax and it does real well. I also use Rain-x for the glass.
