    Default Waxing new boat

    So I finally put a deposit down on a 2014 Mondo and couldn't be more excited about it. It has a December spray date and will likely arrive in MN mid January.

    With a January arrival, I am sure I will have more than enough time to prepare the boat for the summer.

    What are people's thoughts/guidelines about waxing a new boat and what products do people use to protect the boat.

    Congrats on the new boat,Everybody has there favorites but for years i haved used Starbright marine polish at least 4 to 5 times a year and dont neglect the hull,its a pain but if you protect it now it will save you alot of elbow grease later if it gets stained,after a day on the water i recently switched to the Hot Sauce from boat-bling there was a forum discount a while back and i wish i would have switched sooner this stuff is just awesome,highly recommend,havent tried there vinyl products yet but have some on the way,Been using 303 protectant and it is great also.

    I highly recommend Meguire's waxing products. I use them for the boat as well as all my other vehicles. Never had an issue and just love how it makes everything shine!!! My two cents - use microfiber, for everything.

    With a January delivery date in Minnie-Soda and assuming your garage is heated:
    • Move the cars out of the garage
    • Give the boat a nice warm home in the garage (make sure it is well lit)
    • Use any quality wax
    • Start ordering upgraded ballast and stereo equipment - Ping MLA, your not that far from NC
    • Install an on-board battery charger
    • Wax it every two weeks
    • Follow up by sitting in it and making "motor" noises while cranking your new stereo and showing your wife how cool the RGB LEDs are - Over and over - Trust me she will LOVE it! She may not show it, but she will


    Congratulations, what color combo?

    Here it is. I know the black will be extra work but I had to go with a color combo I loved.
