I use the MaGuires Marine wax, its in a blue bottle about $8 bucks and i got it at the local dealer.

I also use the Babe spray wax and can only find it online. I use the spray wax as a once every couple outings deal. I use the McGuires once a month.

Theres another brand everyone swears by but its an online only wax and is a bit pricey.

For the interior i use Babes interior wash, and UV protectant. Aerospace 303 also but thats another online only purchase for me.

You can go to the Babes website and you can find retailers. I bought mine at the lake but they also have it at the local boat dealer where I live. I use the have used the mequires cleaner wax and the flagship premier and I like both of them.

I use Poorboys products. I got a tip from a member on another forum. Its all professional detail products they work great. I use exquisite and 303 on the inside.

I think Mike is talking about Levereage. Yes, it's $20 + shipping a bottle, but IMO it's worth it! I used to spend hours waxing down the boat to get the water spots off, but this stuff does as advertised. I simiple wipe down with a cloth chamois and it looks like you just waxed it.

Thats the stuff i was referring to. Thanks Wolfeman

I use the McGuires 45 Polish for Gel Coats.
I also use the Oxidation removal 49

The 49 will take out hard water spots and also works great for those gel coat scratches you get from boards and other things touching the gel coat.

I like the wax because it smells good, goes on easy and is also easy to wipe off. I can wax the boat in about 30 to 45 minutes.

The oxidation removal has a slight gritty feel to it and you just rub it right into any imperfections you see and then wipe it off, wax it with the polish and all you see is shine and no blemish. I have removed some pretty nasty scratches from people banging there wake boards into the boat. They got a serious tongue lashing, and they are lucky the 49 removed those scrates.

I have to go with Levereage. Easy to apply and wipe off. Makes it quick and simple. Just remember to apply it in the shade or it does not work as well. well worth the price.

I really like Yacht Brights Magic Buff and then use their Pro Polish for the outside. I have heard alot of good buzz about the poorboys products. I also strongly agree with the exquisit products and the Babes soap and seat saver, great stuff. The only thing I didnt read someone else say is Mr Clean's foam cleaning pads, you should'nt own a boat if you don't use these babys.

I use those magic erasers all the time but I have heard of people warning you off of them. They are slightly abrasive and can take the finish off your vinyl. So be sure to use a protectant after you use them.
