Stainless polish for use in the sun
We are gradually getting all of our stainless clean using a German product called Autosol that we bought in Cape Town which claims to be a polish as well as a cleaner. It does an excellent job of cleaning but not so as a polish/protectant as we had the stainless clean in Cape Town and after two months of sailing it was bad. We want to put a separate polish on and the local supply store has a wide range of products to choose. The only problem is that we are doing this in full, tropical sun and several of the products say they are not to be used in full sun. I know talking about the 'full sun' may not be popular for those in northern climes right now
- (and it would too hot except for the trade wind breezes), but I digress.
Any ideas about what to put on the large amounts of stainless we have?
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
