Boat Wax/Polish?

Recommended Posts

minnesotamusky

I'm just wondering which boat wax/polish everyone uses? Which one do you think is the best and why?

I use Meguiars (sp?) (on an aluminum boat) because you dont have to wait to take it off after you put it on. I also wash my boat at least one time per week and wax it at least once every two weeks. That may be the downfall to Meguiars because it doesnt stay on long, or at least to my specs. Good post, I was wanting to know the same thing.

I use a 3M product called Perfect-It III. Its high test stuff the body shops use for gel coats and you have to use a electric buffer to apply and strip it. It has kept my twelve I mean thirteen(we both got older again)year old black Stratos shiny to the point it I can still see myself in the gel coat.

Another product I have had good luck with is also a 3M product simply called boat cleaner/polish wax. Hand application cleaner wax that takes ALOT of elbow work but comes out nice.

for older glass boats; i was told by a boat manufacturer, to use a wax that has carnuba in it. i have been using kit paste wax with carnuba for years on my rangers , and am very happy with the results.

Would all of you guy's like a nice, easy way to clean/wax your boat with very little effort on your part? Just take your 1/4 sheet palm sander and install a piece of old terry cloth towel instead of sandpaper and HAVE AT ER! If you aren't loafing, you should be able to completely wax or clean your boat in about a half hour! Works great on your car too! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Jon, I just thought it would be more fun if I waited until after you bought it.LOL! grin.gifwink.gif One other thing about using the palm sander! Dampen the terry cloth slightly with water, using a spray bottle. Do that before you apply the wax! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
