Salt from the ocean and intense ultra-violet (UV) rays from the sun cause the gel coat on boats to oxidize and yellow, hindering the shine from the underlying finish. This chalky, white residue is an eyesore that takes away from the overall appearance of your pride and joy. You can protect your investment by regularly applying one of many Marine 31 boat waxes and boat sealants. From traditional liquid boat waxes to what is arguably the best spray on boat wax, Marine 31 has a boat wax or boat sealant designed to keep your boat looking new for years. You’ll be happy to hear that all Marine 31 boat waxes and boat sealants can be used in direct sunlight.
Boat Waxing Tip: You should always polish your boat prior to applying a boat wax or boat sealant. Even if you consider your boat to be the best looking one on the water, you would be surprised at the level of gloss and surface smoothness that can be achieved after using Marine 31 Gel Coat Final Step Polish or Marine 31 All-In-One Gel Coat Polish & Wax. Either one of these products will remove light oxidation, surface staining and anything else that could potentially hinder the shine of the underlying finish.
If you want to save time and only perform one step, Marine 31 All-In-One Gel Coat Polish, essentially a beefed up boat cleaner wax, will polish and wax your boat in one step. To achieve a finish that will cause other boaters to do a double take, use Marine 31 Gel Coat Final Step Polish followed by Marine 31 Gel Coat Carnauba Wax + Sealant. Max, Marine 31’s founder and creator, uses this combination on his Grady White boat and he won’t hesitate to tell you that his boat is the best looking in South Florida!
