You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It also got good reviews in Practical Sailor which prompted me to purchase the product.

I'll let you know how it works on my slightly faded hull in a week or so when I get around to using it.

My bottle says it is a "water based polymer with a urethane fortification and UV protectants"

Guess that means it is some type of plastic coating.

I should add I put 6 coats on a 30 foot boat and still have half a bottle left. Enough for 2 applicaions a year for 3 years.

thanks for posting the details Cardiacpaul

My situation is similar to yours with our 32 year old O'Day 27'. I was getting prepared to do the deck and cockpit areas with a 2 part paint, but after giving a good scrub in the cockpit area with TSP and some bleach it occured to me I could get away with Poliglow. I've read some great stuff here about it so I really appreciate you giving a 'blow by blow' account of using the product. For the non-skid areas I'm planning to try Kiwigrip. Just wondering if anyone here has experience with that product. But like yourself, I don't think I'll be any worse off than what we have now no matter what I do to the finish! I'll attempt to capture some before and after shots of the Poliglow.

Paul,
I'd say, "told you so", but that would be impolite.(g) The only detail you left out is the immeasurable increase in your quality of life. I'm going to recoat my hull in a couple of weeks or so, and it's nice to know that I'm not faced with an all day, or two day, job. The appearance took 'painting the topsides' off the 'to do' list and put it on the 'maybe someday' list. Sorry about your butt!

I'm docked right under one of those sodium lights so the dead bugs and related goo used to be a p.i.t.a to remove. Today I just hosed it off. Voila. Life is good.

Hypothetically – What would be the impact of using Poli-Glow to shine up your favorite nautical toy for a few years prior to having a total hull & topsides refinish? Anyone been down that dock?

Less work, less waxing, more time to postpone the total hull & topsides re-finish job. Some additional interest on the money you would have spent on the paint job...

That is pretty much what the PS article said as well. If your gelcoat is shot, this stuff can extend the time until you have to paint.

I put 5 coats on my hull this past weekend. I wouldn't exactly say it was easy, but watching the guy next to me with his buffer convinced me I was doing less work than he was.

My grey hull was evenly colored, but had no shine at all after cleaning with the Poliprep. After we finished with the Poliglow, the hull shines beautifully. A couple of folks nearby in the yard came by to ask what we were using and commented on how nice the shine was. I have to say I'm happy with the purchase so far. It looks like I'm going to have enough left over to cover me for next year maintenence coats as well.

So far, seem like a pretty good bargain.
