We've had good experience with a similar product (though better rated) called Poliglow - same basic procedure with pretty amazing results, esp initially.

However, a few seasons on we are using it only on the topsides, and using a conventional wax on deck, cockpit and cabintop. We found the Poliglow discoloured when exposed to traffic and sunscreened bodies, quickly becoming quite unsightly.

Their pre-treatment product, "Poliprep" is a great cleaning agent too. You can buy a starter kit, with the prep, the polish, a scrubber and an applicator that will easily do a mid-30 foot boat with some left over.
