    Babes products work well for me. The service is great also
    Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

      Lots of vinegar/ water users here. I use speed shine from Griots. But I don't always wipe it down when I take it out of the water.

        This year I switched to Driven, which is sold in a concentrate and makes a gallon, so the price is great. So far I like their products, but only time will tell as far as spots go.

            Vinegar/water is the key. If you want, hit it with babes spray wax after. Then once a season I use Fleetwax. The boat looks like the first day I got it. Crappy phone pic.

              Damp towel here.

              If water spots are a problem, vinegar/water works well. But you'll need to wax more regularly.

              To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

                I tried vinegar/water but honestly can not stand the smell. So I switched to Babes.

                  Babes spray wax every time she comes out of the water. Works great, keeps a nice, clean shine all year.

                    I hose down with clean water and a microfiber rag, then spray the whole boat down with Rat Juice gloss and dry with the same microfiber rag. Smells great, shines great. Once a month I hose down and use Rat Juice spray on wax...spray the whole boat down then rub in and off with microfiber rag, smells even better!!! I'm in dirty river water so I have to hose down at least first though, you lucky bums who dont have to do that!!! Never had water spots though, maybe that the tradeoff.

                    I have nothing bad to say about Babe's (used it for years), I think Rat Juice produces a bit more shine and smells better though.

                          I've tried Ducky, Vinager/water combination & Babes. I like Babes when it's on the trailer. If I'm on a lake for a long time (> day) like lake powell, I'll have my kids wipe it down with Ducky while it's in the water - takes 5 mins. The last boat was black/red. The black was fun to keep clean.

                          I wipe the boat after every use and wax a few times a year.

                              Haven't tried Ducky, but I've tried Babes, Driven, Water/Vinegar, etc.

                              Babes smells the best, but Hot Sauce works the BEST. Better at removing water spots, leaves a better shine!!! There is currently a group buy on themalibucrew.com......
