Wondering what wax you guys prefer on your boats?
How long did you guys wait before you wax your boat for the first time? I have been getting mixed reviews. Some say as soon as you get your boat from the dealer, some say not until 20 hours.

OK, I'll bite: Why 20 hours?

I would say wax it as soon as you get it. What does engine hours have to do with Gel Coat? That doesn't make any sense.

I use Meguire's or any good caranuba (spelling?) wax. I've read some threads where people suggested using 303 instead of wax. I just picked up a bottle of 303 and will be giving it a try this weekend.

You could always use zymol too. It is a polish/wax and wont build up. I'd use it immediately to make sure contaminants dont get in the gelcoat pores.

I'm guess this means you got the new boat. Hope to see it at spring ride.

Peace

Brian- This is not a "wakeboarding discussion".
This topic belongs under boat and accesories.

Just wanted to make sure you knew.
LOL.
Your truck will be done soon.

What up Issac and Evan. I picked up my boat 2 weeks ago. The stereo is being installed now. I have a pic of it in my profile.
My boat was waxed from the dealer, but I did not know if I should wax it now, or wait a while

In my experience the Marine Version of Meguars cleaner wax works the best..... I have 303 and it works awewome on seats, but does nothing for the water spots on the gel coat. Your boat should be cured when you buy it. Wax is unlike paint which take a month to cure. (Fiberglas gel coat will not cure any further in open air.) If you wax it soon it will also help to keep the scunge in the water from sticking and make it easier to wipe of when you take it out of the water.

Brian- Awesome boat, man! I would play it safe and wax it now. Even if they did it at the dealer, there is no harm in doing it again.
