Hi Guys,

Well, the season here is starting to wind down so its about time to think about cleaning the interior for the first time.;) What is a good cleaner to use. A while back I purchased Maguiers (spelling?) Auto/boat vinly cleaner but I not very impressed. In fact windex does a better job removing builup. What products have you guys used with good results in removing that light soilded buildup and bing out that factory whiteness.

Just remember that some cleaners will void your warranty if you use them on your vinyl.

Boat Babes for cleaning. 303 for protection.

So Reese350 do you have Boat Babes cleaning your boat using Babes Boat Products or you just have Boat Babes? :p :p Couldn't help that one ... :D

I'm going to try boat babes next week from the dealer. have heard good things about it..

That is my plan for the weather storage. Babe Clean and 303 Protect.

I have been wiping down the interior when we leave the water to get water spots and any stains and b4 we go out each time I use 303 for the vinyl sunscreen.

Here's my routine and so far it works well, especially with a black hull.

Babe's Seat Soap ~ To clean the grit, use a semi stiff brush & rag
Babes Seat Saver ~ Conditions the vinyl and has UV inhibitors
Meguires Flagship Marine Wax ~ Put on two coats to repel waterspots
Babe's Boat Brite ~ Use at cleanup at lake everytime and you'll never have spots. Use it on Windshield and you'll never have spots. Apply and wipe off with microfiber towels.

I'm in process of getting some Malco Leather & Plastic cleaner which is supossed to be the end all for vinyl cleaning. I'll report later.

Razz, I would get my boat a lot dirtier if that were the case. :)

It was recomended to me by someone at our local MC dealer Fantastic without bleach!, Works well,is cheap and easy to find then use a good conditioner after.
