      I have tried many products. The best my boat looked was after being professionally wet sanded. The oxide was back in a year. Frustrated, I went to west marine and was recommended to this product followed by a thin coat of fleet wax. It takes some work but the end result is unbelievable. My black boat is black, shiny and no oxide!

              Used this on my highly oxidized and stained 1972 Aquarius sailboat. I bought this boat for a song last summer as it look horrible. The previous owner hadn't cleaned or waxed the boat in a decade. One application of this and the boat shines like new. I applied by hand with a towel and a hand buffer, some areas needed a little extra elbow grease to clean up. Took me about 4 hours for the entire job. I won't use anything else.

                I have a 41 fiberglass boat in Egypt and used that product for the first time and was so pleased with the ease of application and results. I strongly recommend this product.

                    I had heavy oxidation on my 92 Crownline 210CC. I applied with a cheap auto buffer. My boat looks as good as the day I bought it, and the finish was smooth as a baby's bottom.

                        This product is amazing and easy to use. Just put on with hand pad, then polished it with my Makita and Wool pad. wiped surface clean with dry rag. Finish looks brand new! Convinced guy next to me with 25 year old viking to try it. He loved it and used it all up. We ar now heading to buy more!
                        I have tried many other products, now throwing them away. I will try adding 3M wax on top.

                            Product is great but WestMarine over charged me for shipping and Taxes. Then never responded to my email I sent with concerns of the mentioned.

                                We bought a 30 year old sail boat a few years ago and hadn't touched the topsides. The boat was out of the water for several years and the gelcoat was heavily oxidized when we bought it. This spring we pressure washed the boat then spent about 3 hours with a cheap grinder/polisher applying this product. The difference is phenomenal. The boat cleaned right up and the restored shine is incredible-you can see your reflection in the boat. This is a great product.
