Boat Cleaning Items

Recommended Posts

I know there are a lot of products recommended for cleaning our beloved boats. What are you all finding to be the best for water spot removal/shine, vinyl cleaner, aluminum tower/chrome cleaner etc. 

Curious as to what you all are using.

I did see them in a group by when I was looking around. I will have to get some of that.

Thank you for the detailed input!! 

So you usually use the 303 twice a year, mid summer and then before storage? Which product of 303 do you use?

I have heard that this Hot Sauce works well. I use a spray cleaner/wax after having one of the cars out, so same concept. Pull the boat out. Wipe down and dry, then go over with hot sauce on microfiber towel.

What's your choice in boat wax?

Hot Sauce does great on my black exterior.

I like Speed Gloss for the exterior right after use.  It's worked better for me than Hot Sauce, but YMMV.  

I also like the vinyl sauce and vinyl conditioner.  I do about four applications of the conditioner during the season.

I use the Maguire's spray wax, as a detail spray. When I pull it out,or Sunday,  I wipe down with  vinegar distilled water 50.50, then Maguires. Works well.

@shawndoggy suggested this product to me a couple years ago and I love it.

I wax once a year with Griot's Poly Wax and then spray and wipe the boat after every use with this stuff. I get a lot of compliments on the shine and have a lot of local friends using it now. It also works awesome on cars. I have a fair amount of black on my boat and this takes the water spots out every time.

They usually run deals on it so keep your eye out. Usually you can do a buy 1 get 1 free and it makes it very affordable.

Boat bling for sure.  For seadek though, boat juice from SC Wake is awesome.

I haven't tried this but they have their own cleaner. We use Vinyl Sauce.
