Woody Wax

Anyone ever use it? We have a bit of a problem with coal dust at our boat club and I was thinking of giving it a try. Just wondering if it really works as good as they claim.

Thanks

Joe

Re: Woody Wax

I assume you're talking about using it on non-skid decks? I've used it and it sort of works. Maybe it's easier to clean off the decks after waxing. Then again our non-skid is 25 years old.

Re: Woody Wax

I've used it for a couple of years and like it. Word of advise... the deck gets *very* slick when you first apply it -- watch your footing. The slipperiness goes away as soon as it's wiped down (follow directions). My experience is that it gives you the protection of wax without making your deck an ice skating rink.

Re: Woody Wax

Yes and worth the money. I use it primarily to keep the dreaded black mold away.

A question of my own, does anybody know if Woody Wax offers UV protection? Cabin sides are getting a bit dull and wondering if maybe I'm just not applying often enough.

Never used it for anything but non-skid -- not really a high-gloss application.

Re: Woody Wax

Never used it on nonskid- boat's so old it doesn't matter. But it does wonders on my black anodized toe rail.

Re: Woody Wax

I use Colinite Fleet Wax everywhere else but it's really too slippery to use in most places on deck and in the cockpit. I'm not too concerned about the shine (function over form) but gelcoat doesn't last long in SoCal without protection.

Re: Woody Wax

I think I'm gonna try it, Defender has it on sale right now. If it makes the coal dust a little easier to deal with it will be well worth it.

Re: Woody Wax

Joe - I am in Sandusky and coal dust is definitely a problem as well as the birds and Greenies. But I have been less than impressed with the Woody Wax product. Tried it for two years now and have not liked it's ability to repel stains or the dust. Very slippery if you apply to much so definitely read the directions if you intend to try it.

Thanks for that, is there anything you have found that works better? Is it better than nothing? We are in Ashtabula and it can be a constant battle to keep the boat clean from the dust.
