You've got most of the options covered. . . but what about 'tried both, and no strong preference' ?

Only reason I go with 303 is because that's specifically what the vinyl mfg. reccomends. I've never even seen Babe's for sale anywhere.

Pete and others, would you change over to Baby's if the price was right?

I definitely would buy Babe's Boat bright for the hull.

For the vinyl, I'm happy with 303 & would need someone who's compared to say they are equivalent or babe's is better. 303 has been proven over the years and in my experience, vinyl tends to be more fragile (meaning other "vinyl protectants" have been known to damage the vinyl in the long run.

Malibu included Babe's boat bright and seat soap samples with my boat. They also provided literature and recommendations for 303.

I will continue to use boat bright, seat soap (for cleaning) and 303 (for protection).

Yep! I have only used Babes seat soap for the cleaning and 303 as the protectant. I would like to hear from those that have used both the protectants....Babes and 303.

I use Vinyl Finish for cleaning and 303 for protecting the vinyl. It seems all of these products are endoirse either by Malibu or by G&T Industries whom is the manufacture of the vinyl. My guess would be there is no real winner...cheapest product wins.

I buy all my 303 in bulk gallons. I just got those 2 gallons of fabric protectant. (that I mentioned in another thread) And, the only other 303 thing I use is the vinyl protectant, again, I buy it by the gallon and don't use that much of it.

So, to answer Greg's question, no, I don't think I'd be interested in Babe's. Thanks anyway.

Never used 303 but I have used Babe's seat soap and seat saver. The cleaner seems to work fine, I bought a scrub brush from them and together they do a great job. Haven't used the seat saver for long, so I can't really tell if it is helping yet. I must say that the seat soap smells quite nice.

G&T makes their own vinyl cleaner. I used it last season, and it kinda sucks. I switched to Babe's Seat Soap and it works 10x better.

Is this poll just about vinyl? Folks use Babe's and 303 products on gelcoat too.

honestly i think Babe's copied the 303 products... but marketed it well getting Malibu to approve it and then to give away free samples in the boats for people to try...

303 conditioner is a little too greasy for me...

I'm a personal fan of Babe's... the boat bright is by far my favorite for a quick spray wax...
