dodger windows

I would like to clean and polish the windows on my dodger, they are the flexible vinyl type not in too bad of shape just a bit scratched and in need of cleaning.
I do not want to damage them and have not really done any thing but hose them with water.

Check out a recently past issue of practical sailor for a good write up on various products. Some do a very respectable job

Re: dodger windows

We've used Meguiar's products for years, entirely satisfactory. Cleaner and Polish.

Recently got Novus, in a pump spay bottle. More convenient to use. Wash the dodger windows with a soft sponge and regular dishwashing detergent, and rinse.

There's also an Imar product that Maine Sail raves about.
