I tried the West Marine One step compund/wax last summer. I had read a positive review (I think from Practical Sailor), and I would much rather spend my time sailing than waxing. It gave my hull a really nice shine that stayed new looking for about two months, and still made water bead up everywhere but the waterline and under the scuppers after four months. I think this year I will use it again, and if I have time (hah!), I will add a second coat of regular wax. I must admit that I have been tempted to try the Poli-glow type products, but so far I have been too lazy to research it.
