    Talking Ultimate Boat hull protection???

    Hello everyone..
    I joined awhile back and have just got up and running. I have gained so much info and help from here and ordered product from proper auto care. This place Rocks!!! Anyway, my question is:
    How can I protect the hull of a bot with the best possible coverage. I have done a Wash, Clay, Wash, mild cutting compound, polish, glaze and sealant. This boat is used for deep sea fishing, so I am sure there is nothing that will be long term, but I would like to offer my customer the best I can. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much guys.

    EX sealant from www.poorboysworld.com is excellent.
    Dream big and be willing to do the work to get there.

    Steve,

    For ultimate boat hull protection I would recommend using Meguiar`s #55 Polymer Sealant, which is basically #20 in the auto line.

    Here`s a link to the Meguiar`s Marine Care Professional Products;

    The closest thing to #55 that I found in the marine product section of Meg`s web-site was #56
    Boat/Rv Pure Wax
    * Durable high gloss protection for fiberglass and all painted surfaces
    * Blend of pure Brazilian carnauba wax with silicones, polymers and resins to maintain extraordinary gloss and protection
    * Protects against the sun`s ultraviolet rays

    Must not be what you are referring to since it sounds more like a carnauba blend than it does a sealant.

    Am I looking in the wrong place?

    Yes, I was looking in what appears to have been the wrong place.
    While I never did find it on Meguiar`s site, I did find it on a boat product site.
    *******
    MEGUIAR`S #55 BOAT/RV PREMIUM SEALANT
    Advanced blend of selected polymers, silicones and imported waxes for a brilliant high gloss shine that outlasts all other waxes on fiberglass and painted surfaces. 16oz.
    *******
    It was priced at $28.95, including shipping, on that site.
    Sounds kind of pricey to me, but that may not be as expensive as it sounds when you consider the cost of shipping.

    I suggest Collinite. To clean use #920 Fiberglass Boat Cleaner and follow with either #925 Fiberglass Boat Wax or #885 Paste Fleetwax. I believe Collinite is the industry leader when it comes to marine protection. Also gaining a large market for automotive and fleet use. Products that are cheap and durable, really a great value.

    Give them a call and they can help you on right products to use for your specific rig. Here is a link for their list of distributors: http://www.collinite.com/order.htm

    3M has the best line of fiberglass cleaners, polishes, and waxes. I used to work at one of the largest boat dealership in the country.

    I believe "best" to be a relative term.
    A society willing to trade liberty for temporary security deserves neither and will lose both

    Most boat supply stores that stock Meguiar`s products should have #55. And it is usually priced under $15 per 16oz
