The best thing about this holiday is that it marks the time of year when so many folks put their boats up for the year. Best skiing around here is the day after labor day till you can't stand having your feet turn blue!

I love the color of your boat. I think if we order a new boat it will have charcoal and stratosphere blue on it

We went out this morning for some skiing and had the river to ourselves. Probably is picking up now though.

That is a nice looking boat.

Boat looks awesome! Weather looked iffy but we decided to go anyway. Glad we did.

Saturday was pretty empty......clouds kept people away I guess!! Got another new boarder up on her first try! I am 4 for 4 this summer. Sunday was gorgeous and packed but got some early morning skiing and boarding in and then some more boarding on glass between 7pm and dark. Today didn't get on the water till 10am...expected the worst, but then found a cove all to ourselves! Weather was great again but I can sadly feel the hint of fall approaching in the air. :(

All in all was a great weekend. When it got busy we just floated around the dock listening to tunes and making fun of the drunk neighbors, lol.

Thanks everyone. I religiously use Boat Bling Hot Sauce and Vinyl Sauce after each outing, so the boat was in pretty good shape. I ended up using some Meguiar's Flagship boat wax and applied and removed by hand (microfiber). I wasn't prepared to do a full sealant/wax job with a DA orbiter, since I haven't purchased one yet. But I imagine that time is coming soon enough (maybe to start next summer). Here in Arizona I ride all winter long, so this is just a little "middle of the season" tune up.

Beauty! We got an early morning surf in on Saturday then headed to the beach where the boat finally got a good scrub. Only a few weekends left here on the east coast!

What are people using for swirl marks/spiderwebbing? Would like a good all in one.

You can use Meguairs One Step compound. With a medium pad it took care of every imperfection with ease. Make sure you seal your gelcoat after.

Happy Labor Day everyone. Well, as the title suggests, I skipped out on the lake today and decided to detail/wax the boat. Thanks to the crew for all of the detailing tips I have read over the past few days. Hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Labor Day!

Your boat looks great! I did the same thing, polished and waxed instead of going out. One less job to do before winter layup

She looks great! You nailed it, best riding of the year is October! I hope you can hit weekdays, i just got soccer schedule. EVERY Saturday through thanksgiving!

You Need a orbital cuts wax time by 70%. I was able to get two coats of sealant and a coat of wax a couple weeks ago.

Uh...I feel like I would get the short end of the stick...22' vs 24'. You have WAY more surface area ;)

Have you tried the Mcguire Scratch X 2.0? I've used it for swirl mark removal with good success. I'm a big fan of it, the stuff just seems to work well and is super easy to apply and remove.
