I was not a believer myself until this past summer when I saw a badly oxidized 1969 Columbia with a dark blue hull restored to almost showroom condition. The hull was first de-oxidized with 400 grit hand wet sanding...and looked really ugly after is was wiped clean with mineral spirits afterwards. Then 2 coats of the magical poliglow were applied and I was amazed at how good the hull looked. I see the boat daily and it looks almost as good 6 months later. I'm sold on the benefits and ease of the product but I'm sure it will need renewing which is much easier than waxing.
