Bass Boat Saver as well.

+1 for Meguiar's. I stop by the car wash on the way home and give it $2 worth of high pressure soap and rinse then put it in the garage. I like to hang out in the garage with a cold beer or two quite often and will hit a rag with Meguiar's Quick Detailer and wipe the boat down a little at a time. This keeps it from being such a chore. By the time the next weekend rolls around she is all purdy again! cheers

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of boat (size really) and how much did the ceramic coating cost? Who did it for you?

22 foot Bullet, I think it was 1100.00, I think the company name was DFW Ceramic Coatings out of Lewisville, I can get you the exact info if you need it, that stuff is pretty amazing, he said I should get two years out of it, probably more because my boat stays inside. He also said you can bring it back and the second time around is quite a bit cheaper. Your boat looks like it has been waxed every time you wipe it down.

Wipe down with a towel but use Lucas Slick Mist when back in the garage.

The guy we use is named Oscar and he comes to your house. It's around a grand but we had other vehicles done so you get a break for multiples. Planes are by the foot.

He's meticulous as all get out and does an excellent job. Like others have said, when it's done it is really easy to clean and looks fantastic.

His number is 214-518-5778 and ask for the TFF discount.

I like the 303 protectant
I’ve used Lucas and BBS but seems like 303 is easier to wipe off and lasts longer, in my opinion

Warning to those who use Vinegar and Water. Does it work for getting dirt and water spots off? YES it does. I used it for about 3 years after I got my boat and it looks great after you pull it out and wipe it down. Here is the problem however, the vinegar will remove everything else as well, including any wax coat you may have on it. Maybe not once or twice, but if you keep using it definitely will strip it over time. If you can re-apply wax multiple times a year, then nothing beats it as far as removing dirt and water spots.


Aren't they all "reaction" bites?

I use REJEX polymer sealer. I have it on my bot, Truck, Car, Travel Trailer, shower walls and glass door.
reapply twice a year and dawn bath in between. Easy to clean.
