Hey everyone. just wanted to know what I should do when I first take the vlx home before it's first use. Is it a good idea to carnuba wax it and 303 the interior before I even put it in the water?

It is certainly a good idea. I myself could never stomach the delay of all that before putting a new boat in the water but if you can muster up the willpower go for it ;)

we went to the launch, took the boards out fo the trunk and headed out for a quick 5 min set. THen, back to the launch to drop the dealer's son who took one of the 2 quick sets we had, then drove around for a few hours to break it in and make sure everything worked as it was supposed to. Then, we cleaned it up and put it away for the night.

Those first 5 minute sets are crutial!

Well do to the crappy weather Cry.gif , straight to the storage garage, and started the stereo install Rockon.gif . 1 Month later first ride and then waxed the boat and cleaned the interior really good. 303 a must in my eyes.

My dealer told me to wait a little bit before waxing the boat. Said that it would let the boat "breath" better.

The boat needs a little time to "harden out" even after you get it. Make any sense? Anyone else heard this?

I bought some 303 and wax today at a boating shop. and the clerk said the same thing as far as hardening. But he saidf about 30 days or so after build time was good enough. I have no idea, anyone else think more time is needed?

Take lots of pictures.

Sit in the boat, open up a beer and just think about what you have in the driveway. Oh my heaven, I finally did it, bought a brand new boat.

Than pull out the 303 and wipe down all the drool
