Anyone use the turtle wax brand wax as you dry or a similiar product immediately following removal of the boat from the water, while still wet? Just wondering how this auto based product would effect the gel coat over time. Ive used it for about 2 months with good results but read that it has a carnuba wax blend in it & heard thats not good for the gel coats.

I often use wash wax all http://www.washwaxall.com/
keeps the gel coat looking great between waxes

I wipe down with a 5o/5o mix of vinegar and water spray it down with the mix and wipe absolutly no water spots then wax a few times a year I have black and red gelcoat and it shows water bad and the nix I use works wonders and its dirt cheap

I was told to use a paint sealer, got it from Groits Garage mail order. Heard waxes on gel coat will over time cause that hazy look. Dont know if thats true or not, but the sealer has worked great, goes on and off easy, last a long time!!
