I heard 303 works amazingly, I used Meguiers the other day, it made an awesome shine!

303 is good to apply on clean vinyl. I would use magic erasers on the vinyl before applying the 303( Aerospace 303 protectant) On the outside of the boat when doing a full detail I use a porter cable and use meguairs cleaner polish on a polishing pad... this will usually get rid of any waterspots, and then go over that with a wax of choice.. Klasse AIO is great. NXT Window cleaner I find to be my favorite on windows. Then during wipe down if you fill a sprayer up with vinegar it should help with water spots.

Vinegar/water mixture followed by Meguiars polish and then wax. Works wonders. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/361756.jpg" alt="Upload">

If you want the BEST one step process got to <a href="http://www.boatbling.net" target="_blank">www.boatbling.net</a> and get HOT SAUCE. I have tried the rest and this is the best water spot remover/ wax I have used. Yes it cost more at about $16-18 a bottle with shipping. Let me guess you spent over $20K for your boat, spend some coin on keeping it looking good. Also the Vinyl Sauce is very good as well. I also like the 3M vinyl restorer if you have older vinyl that needs to be cleaned up and taken care of. As for wax and polish I really like the driven product line. <a href="http://www.driventoperfection.com" target="_blank">www.driventoperfection.com</a> it does a great job.

No offense Up North but a new boat better look great in the first year of use. My boat now is a 1992 and The gel and vinyl look great. <BR> <BR>Check it out for your self. These pics are coming home from the Colorado river (Havasu area) using only Hot Sauce with a coat of Driven Polish 3 months earlier put on. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www2.hotboat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121447" target="_blank">http://www2.hotboat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121447</a>
