Where's Tommy with his skepticism and MSDS info when you need him? Too bad he couldn't face us after measuring the draft on his RLX, I'd be interested in his opinion on this one.

Miracle stuff.

I'd like to know as well. I use vinyl finish it's great stuff but expensive. I'm curious what the active cleaning agent is? Some of these use amonia that can strip the protective covering.

I use the Vinyl Finish as well. Sometimes Fantastic and always 303.

Be nice to have Tommy around to shoot a few holes in this one (or not).

Last deep claning I used Fantastic (on G&T's list) and a medium stiff brush. WHATEVER you use, the BRUSH is the key. It gets into the nooks & crannies like no cloth ever could. Amazing results. Finished with 303.

I was just thinking about Tom....(not Tommy.... I'm not his mother OR a woman having 'a good time'.......) Biggrin.gif

Pat,

Agreed that a soft nylon brush is key to cleaning.

I am brand new to the Malibu crew but I have found this site to be an excellent source of information for a Malibu owner.

Following your thread I have one question..........What is 303? Does it have a more formal name? Who makes it?

What is it that makes everyone swear by ?

303 High Tech Fabric Guard is "the" stuff to use to waterproof Sunbrella and the 303

Aerospace Protectant is "the" stuff to use on vinyl.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is equivalent, and I would think less abrassive.

if you really want tom's take, post your question on rec.sport.waterski - you might get a response (he's posted there occasionally since leaving mbo/tmc).

Welcome to the site! Marine dealers carry 303 and some automotive stores as well.

Thanks, Kevin. I don't want his take on it that bad. Biggrin.gif I just like to yank his chain once in awhile, thinking that one of these times he might actually be at the other end of it.
