Re: Stainless polish for use in the sun
Cleaning is not the problem. The stuff we are using now, Autosol, works very well when applied with a tooth brush, which is good because you can get into the cracks and welds where the rust tends to be. Perhaps what I need to be thinking about is re-passivating the steel rather than polishing it to protect it. We have a neat looking stainless piece that covers the entire bow at deck level and I know exactly where the rust will appear in it. I think the store sold something that claimed to do passivating.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Now in Bermuda and heading to Long Island Sound in the first week in May. Then on to the Hudson and the Erie Canal.
