Has anyone tried the polyethylene "Ultimate Bunk Board Replacement" system which has no carpet. Just wondering about the gel coat on my 20 ft fiberglass boat.

How do you apply the Gulf Wax?

Back in the day Gulf Wax was used to seal homemade jelly in the jars. The wax was melted and poured on top of the jelly, when it cooled it solidified and sealed the jelly in the jar. Candles can also be made using Gulf wax. I would just be interested in knowing how it is applied to the bunk boards. Melted and poured into the carpet? Rubbed on?q

Thanks to all for answers, Dobbin, proangler response seems to indicate no damage to his hull, so thanks for that response.

It's just canning paraffin wax, you can get it anywhere. Or good old Amazon; https://www.amazon.com/Gulf-Wax-Household-Paraffin

My experience has been with any material other than carpet you may damage the gel coat over time!
