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

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
