It will hold up for at least a year. Then strip(different methods, easy) and reapply. Not a wax but an alternative to a wax, just pour and mop for a floor, or pour and slather if a boat
. If you leave it for two or more years, it will loose its luster. However, incredibly tough(remember it has to hold up to constant foot traffic).
Most grocery stores and walfart sell the stuff. We used mop and glo last time. You trade
off saving a lot of time and sweat for repeated applications. But the hull will shine. Try it on a dingy to get the hang of it.
An old friend paints his 48' cheoy lee
clipper's hull with ordinary acrylic
house paint(black hull). Does it about every three years. Just washes hull, and paints. Up real close it looks like a house, but several feet away and it is bright and shiny for thee plus years. Scuffs, just touch up.
So bottom line: go acrylic floor wax or house paint. Easy, cheap
, fast, and looks good(at least from a foot or more away).
