Does anyone have any preferences for waxes that last longer than the rest? I''ve been using Strbrite Teflon for years but wonder if there''s anything better out there. Miracle wax anyone?

I buy it from the local boatyard in northern Illinois at "marine discount" pricing. I would send an email to the company requesting contact information for your local distributor.

I found a container of 3M cleaner and wax onboard my boat. It held its luster all season and all winter. I just re-applied a new coat. Good stuff. Has carnuba wax too.

I''ve said it before and I will say it again.
Johnsons Acrylic Floor Wax!!!! Way cheap, Lasts way long and is easy to apply. The wax on my 20 year old hull is going on 2 years and still looks pretty darn good. Try it you''ll like it

Colinite Fleet Wax #885 Paste . This stuf is bullet proof. I can go almost six months before I start to get yellowing at the waterline. No other wax has even lasted 3 months. It is a laborous application but when done right she will look great!!!
