Waxing advice

Looking for some feedback as to how often you (for those that do) wax your boats, processes, materials used, etc? Iím thinking mine might be due here soon and wanting to see if there are any tricks of the trade for in water boats and to reduce the overall labor effort as well as seeing if anyone uses any particular products that they like, such as the Meguiarís ceramic coating spray on wash off solution.

Re: Waxing advice

I do it every time the boat gets out of the water, generally every 2 or 3 years. I follow more or less this advice as from this tread, (I think it was written by Maine) using 3m products. First I had a Makita polisher with powercord, then I went with Milwaukee with 18 V battery, even better.
Wishing you all sunny skies above, clear water below, gentle winds behind and a safe port ahead,
and when coming this way check,_Australia

Re: Waxing advice

I use Mothers systems for years.
I bought a used boat which had a dusty gravel road to enter the club. I stripped old wax then used a mother’s clay bar to clean the pores in the glass. Then mother’s filler sealer and wax. I use Aurora non slip wax on the non slip areas. Stuff is great gets sticky when wet.

Re: Waxing advice

I use a common liquid wax and typically get around the whole boat twice a season. Hull immaculate
