Covering Wax

I have some fine checks in the deck paint. Don't want to repaint right now. I'm looking for a wax or polish that can fill in the cracks & checks in the paint. There used to be colored wax that could help with this but it now only comes in red & black. I'm looking for white or off white.

A good paste wax will fine the very fine lines but not do much for the pitted spots and deeper scratches.

You can machine buff with product that has both a wax and a compound. I've had good luck with a product called AquaBuff 2000. It must be applied with a machine. Air powered tools are lighter if you have access to one. If you can swing a large electric buffer around a boat you'll end up with very sore shoulders or some great looking arms. The little toy car buffers won't do the job.

These are deeper checks in the paint, not fine surface scratches. Almost like gel coat crazing in size and depth. I also have a few gel coat crazing spots I'd like to hide/fill too.
