AWL sells recommended products for their paint. My boat is AWLgripped and until last year I simply washed and waxed (with good wax, not polish!). I then had the yard prepare the boat for launch and they used AWLwash and AWLcare. However see my previous about machine buffing. But I will say the boat has not looked as nice except just after it was painted. This year I ordered some of the AWL stuff and plan to use it as directed.
