You need to ask skipgundlach in this forum what his experiences were before you use that product.

Re: topside restoration - poli-glow vs wax

I have used polyglow on my boat and the results were stunning. My hull was already a very light cream color, but I did not notice any additional discoloration at all. Even if it were the case, if your considering polyglow in the first place your hull is probably in a condition that a nice polished slightly yellowed color would still be preferable to a dusty, chalky white! The other option... painting the topsides. A $100.00 solution or $5000.00 solution.

Re: topside restoration - poli-glow vs wax

I paid a yard about a thousand dollars to do my hull only to look about the same in a year or so it was polyglow from then on. Now on the nonskid I did try it but removed it because of yellowing and slippery, my friends boat looks good with it on his nonskid because type it is . Maintenance is far easier than re-wax or re-buff

Our first boat we had was a 30 Catalina. After buying a bottle of poly glo down at the strickly sail years ago I started doing some reading on it. After seeing what it was and many at our marina were curious about it as well. Being a little skeptic of it I had agreed to try one side of our hull with poly glo and the other with Future floor wax. I did both sides the same and in prep and application and I have to say I was very pleased with the Future floor wax as well as the Poly Glo. Both can be removed with amonina and water mix. The only difference was I had more money in my pocket when using the Future floor wax.
