Those of you who wipe down your boats when you pull out of the water, what do you use when you wipe down? Just a towel? Any cleaner? Anything special?

Just a towel is all my boat needs. It’s 18 years old and I had it we’d sanded, polished, then ceramic coated. Nothing sticks to it now. It looks showroom fresh with a damp toweling after it’s strapped down for the ride home.

The ceramic coating I used is TurtleWax Hybrid ceramic spray. Best $20 I have spent on the boat in a while.

I use a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar. Cheapest way I have found, then later a little Speed wax.

Just towel dry it off coming outta the water. At home I apply either Lucas Slick Mist or BBS. I like BBS a little better.

Check under your cleats, I bet they are rusted to the hilt, vinegar is an acid

3m Hand Glaze followed by
3m Ultra Fine Machine Polish
Then wax.

The results were fantastic on my 13 yr old boat.

I do use Lucas Slick mist after putting it on the trailer.

I live on a gravel road. So when I get home I use a wet towel to wipe her off then it dries and I wipe it down with Lucas slick mist every single time.

I quit wiping my boat down about 6 years ago. I definitely catch more fish now that my boat isn't so shiny. roflmao
