I am a little leery of polymer stuff (although I'd trust the awl-whatever), and here's why:
down here in Bayou Land, the water
is brown, and hulls turn yellow. I used to have a Hobie 16 that I'd bleach and coat with a polymer (can't remember its name). I always was pleased with the result.
So when I got the trimaran
, after a year or two the hull
started to yellow, I bleached it, and tried the same stuff. It went weird on me. Like it turned grayish and I can't remember what all. But I ended up spending a fair bit of time wiping off three damn hulls with acetone to get that crap the Hell off my boat. I'm probably gonna grow an extra tit or something from all this acetone. I guess my husband will be happy about that.
I decided to try the StarBrite on a friend's recommendation. Knew that I shouldn't be waxing Awlgrip, but since the paint
job is old, I didn't have much to lose. As I've said, it's been a good thing. Winter comes, we put the boat up on blocks, wash, bleach, and teflon wax stuff. 1x/year, good for me.
Gotta go two states away to get the awlstuff, but I guess for a once yearly application it wouldn't be too bad.
Jedi, are you by chance in a brown water
part of the world? I'm interested in the rejex seeing as I can probably get it locally.
