    I had the boat compounded and waxed...the fibreglass guy recommended a spray wax to maintain the finish thru the season, but didn’t recall any specific brands. I did a google search and came up with Meguiars Flagship Ultimate Detailed or Boat Bling Quickie Sauce. Also mentioned was Collinite Liquid Fleetwax, but it is a bottle format as opposed to a spray on.
    Comments would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm boathouse kept, so I wax once a year, use boat soap that has carnauba wax in it and after leaf blowing, squeegeeing I spray Tuttle wax, wax as you dry and then towel dry. My boat looks like it is brand new.

    I'm a fan of Woody wax. Easy to use and works great, especially for the first couple of weeks.

    I’m a fan of spray wax. Boat and cars. When washing I spray the wet car/boat then dry - seems to keep the wax on in between the big waxes. Also use it on the bimini frame and rails. The regular Mequiars or Turtle Wax works as good as any.

    Everyone makes a spray wax, Mothers, meguires, griots, 3d, .... list goes on forever. Pick any brand and use it, it will help extend the life of the wax.

    I really like IGL Ecoshine Enhancer. While not a true spray wax, it will still extend the life of existing waxes or sealants and I can use it to protect my gauges, chartplotter, stereo remotes, etc. I personally like to have one product that has multiple uses in cases where it makes sense.

    I use Woody Wax on all my bright work. It really helps to clean and seal up my rails, cleats, cup holders, and so on. I also spray it on my engine and electronics in the bilge after cleaning. It helps to prevent build-up and corrosion and makes it a cinch to wipe down and clean up!
