For any questions or concerns, please refer to these FAQ inquiries:
1. What can I do between waxes to keep my boat looking good?
Regularly wash the boat with a mild soap specifically designed for boats. Rinse the area with fresh water and dry with a chamois to avoid spotting. Avoid household or harsh cleaners as they will compromise the wax. If necessary spot clean dirty areas, or use a cleaner wax to remove stains.
2. What products are you using on my boat?
There is no simple answer, we use what we believe are the best products on the market. We use many products with specific purposes. We also blend products depending on the condition of your boat. We use products by Meguires, Collonite, Trewax, and many others. Some products we use are only commercially available.
3. What should I use when cleaning my boat?
Use a mild soap specifically made for boats. Avoid using harsh cleaners that will strip the protective wax. They can also stain fabrics and yellow enclosures. Also avoid abrasive cleaners as tiny scratches will collect dirt and damage the luster and finish. If an area isn’t coming clean with boat soap, spot clean it with a stronger cleaner or use a cleaner wax.
