The instructions on the 3M bottle tell the user what pad to use (theirs) and what speed to use. Obviously you have never worked for a boat restorer or you would investigate before you show your ignorance. This is the absolute last piece of F***ing info I give to this site.
Well at least that last piece wasn't in the learning to sail forum! (g)
My thoughts on Poli-glow have been adequately expressed elsewhere and I think CP's experience with it indicates that you might not want to use it on your deck (!), and I've had zero yellowing or any other problems. And believe me, if I do, you'll be the first to know about it. I think you said it best when you said that you preferred to spend your time sailing. I presume that moving the ladder is why it took 4 hours to put the Poly-glo on. (g) I do my 21' trailer-sailer in about 30-40 minutes!
