Hi All.
I have been using the Farecla Profile range of products on my 40 plus year old gel coat, finishing off with there Ultimate UV wax,but I find the glossy finish just doesn't last.
I am not a fan of silicon based waxes but I have been recommended Car Plan no1 super gloss and also Autoglym products, so I was wondering if anyone had a wonder wax that would last longer than a few weeks.
I had a word at Brooms and they said there were a few Polymer coatings available, anyone had any experience of these?
Another name mentioned was a range by August Race.
I would interested to hear your views.

Have used Mer with good effect and an impressive finish. Took some doing the first time but after that was easier. Been persuaded to try some Meguiar's M5616 Marine Wax but can't report on that yet!

For several years on my 26ft yacht I have used 1 coat of Autoglym Super Resin Polish followed by 1 coat of Extra Gloss Protection.  This on both deck and hull - beware on deck areas without non-slip, it has the coefficient of friction of Teflon on ice.
Gives an excellent shine and seems to stay clean throughout the year.  Any dirt does not appear to adhere, so just a quick polish at the end of the year (already done) and ready for the Spring.

"Hi" you may like to try 3 m products as i have used these for years on all my boats, the wax is not cheap i think its around £20.00 a tin but it sure does the job and it will last but you do have to keep on top of it as any product will fade with sunlight and rain or you could go with a product called "Poly-glow" which is like a clear lacquer which drys in about 15 to 20 mins depending on outside temperature but you do have to clean the fibreglass right back with a special cleaning agent they supply which is quite easy to use and your boat will shine for at least 6 months or more.
Good Luck.  Smile

Kindest Regards Mike

My vote goes to the Collinite range: I used it on all the GRP boats I owned, and still do on my Morgan. Don't forget that polish cleans the paintwork/gel coat by removing a thin layer (so shouldn't be done too often), it's waxing that gives the shine...

I’ll second Pampatha, Boautoglym! Works for me on cars, boats and bikes! Lasts forever too, found an old bottle in the workshop the other day, fifteen years old but still shining... until it started raining yesterday.

Many thanks for all your recommendations plenty there for me to play with. Very disappointed with the Farecla range and surprised how sort lived the results are despite keeping an all over cover on all of the time. I will report back on what works as my gel coat seems particularly prone to fading. All the best!

Hi

I had very good results with ‘Peek’ polish from Aquafax.

Really brought the shine back and lasted a few years on Dawn Princess before needing another application.
