So I've seen the excellent post by Mainesail for compounding and waxing tips but what do you do for your topsides?

I want to protect my gelcoat for the winter but I don't want to wax nonskid for obvious reasons.

Are you talking about the deck or the topsides....?

3M Cleaner and Wax. They make separate products too, but this works fine on reasonable oxidation and is not terribly difficult to apply. It does take a bit of work. We do it each Spring on all unpainted deck gelcoat, ex the non-skid.

I've always used baking soda and a brush; then again, they've always gone mildewy halfway through the season.
