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.
I love to travel, but hate to arrive. ~~ A. Einstein
You donít stop riding because youíre getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, Wow! What a Ride! ~~ Hunter S. Thompson
My wakeboard is calling, and I must go ride! ~~ Me
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.
