I use mostly Gel-Gloss, once or twice I used some 3M marine cleaner/wax, it was much more expensive than the Gel-Gloss. My boat is fiberglass, 10 years old and still looks great.

a friend of mine that is the owner of Profile Boats;( he builds the baha style and cats.) told me to use a wax that has carnuba in it for my ranger . i have been using kit paste wax for years . i read in Bass and Walleye Boats mag. that some waxes are really a clear coat. which looks great and shines for a long time, but if you need to get the boat repaired, they have a devil of a time removing this stuff to refinish the glass.hopefully we have some guys on here that repair boats that will provide great info!

In between waxes I use a spray detailer that wipes on and off every time I use my boat.It works great for removing dust/waterspots etc. and it's quick if you do it often enough not to let the grime biuld up.Extra work but I fish better with a clean rig grin.gif

The fore mentioned 3m cleaner/wax works very good for keeping build-up to a minimum. It also keeps the oxidized gel coat off so you don't get that dull chalky look to the gel coat. If it does get a little hazy looking, 3m also sells a very good polish that will bring back the gloss and make it look new again.

Maguire's spray on "Quick Wax" or regular wax. If there is a heavy build up/scum go with straight Vinager on it first to remove then wax.

You would be amazed at how nice WD40 will make your boat look. Removes oxidation, rub marks etc... I was skeptical until I tried it.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
