Hi, and as always, thanks in advance. I store both my boats outside under a Danuu cover here in the Garden State (yes, New Jersey). They are both Kevlar with a gel coat, wood gunwales etc, and cane seats. In the spring I hose them off and clean them with Murphy’s Oil soap. After they dry I sand/oil the wood and spray the the non wood parts down with 303 and hand buff. My question is: should I use marine fiberglass products like soaps and gel coat treatments to clean and care for the non wood parts? The 303 seems to do a good job on the gel coat (1 boat is a deep red) but the boats are only 2 years old so I am looking at very long term care.
I would keep right on doing…
exactly what you are doing.
There is no need to spend the big bucks for marine grade stuff.
keep on as you are.
3M’s super yacht wax lasts longer than
303, and may therefore not be much pricier.
