Just tried Mother's Marine Cleaning Wax. The weather here has been awful - rain just about every day the past 10 days - and combined with my work travel, I have had almost no time to get the boat ready to splash. So this year, I decided I would rather have the boat in by this weekend than both compound and wax. I had tried the West Marine One Step Polish and Wax in previous seasons when I was also pressed for time, but I didn't want to drive all the way out to that store. I was stopping at a discount hardware store on my way to the boat this morning to pick up painting supplies anyway, and they had the Mother's Marine Cleaning Wax. A bottle was only 9.99, so I figured what the heck. I must say that I am very pleased with the way it looks now. I assume the wax finish won't last as long as the Maguires I put on the past two years, but we all must make sacrifices.

Anyone have any experience with this or other Mother's products?

I have used their aluminum polish on the polished rims of my '78 911SC, but I've not used the stuff you're talking about. I did attempt use of the metal polish on my compass to clear a haze that has formed ever since it was sneakily replaced when I had the Richie unit serviced by a local company. I took a risk and it worked out great.

Mother's has my backing.
