Re: Poli Blow er Glow
I came across this Poli Glow hater on another forum. I simply copied and pasted it making no edits!
"Well, this is the year, finally taking this sXXt off SeaQuell.
Spent 4 hours yesterday, got about 85% of it off the not non-skid portions of the deck, forward of the companionway; using Poli-Prep and a stiff brush and plastic Kurly Kate.
Today I found the aggressive abrasive the manufacturer supplies with the kit for this purpose. I just love taking this to the gelocat of SeaQuell (not). What was shiny gelcoat before PoliGlow surely won't be after I get this crap off.
I finally gave up on the 50:50 solution teh manufacturer recommends and started using the Poli-Prep straight. I can do a spot about 1 foot square, and rinse it off real fast, before it rehardens into a dirty goo, and doens't go anywhere.
Running out of Poli-Prep fast, so I'll hafta try some floor stripper, since there isn't a PoliGlow dealer in Peterborough. Not that I wanna give that company any more of my hard earned cash.
I imagine after another 12 hours, we'll have it completely off the boat. (Got it out of the cockpit the year after we first put it on, as the sun tan lotion made a grey gooyey mess out of it, first cruise out.)
I'll admit this PoliCrap makes a chalky boat look shiny; but applying Meguiars fibreglass oxidation remover (by hand) and a couple coats of wax (with a buffer) and then touching up mid-season, is less than half the work of removing last year's PoliGlo, and then wiping on 5 or 6 fresh coats for this year.
Well, it's a beautiful day out there, so I guess I better don my gloves and safety glasses, so I can scrub this sXXt off. I've got a lot of better things I could be doing, but oh well, at least this is the last year for this huge waste of time."
