Default Poly Glow

Hello everyone!

I was wondering, has anyone heard of or had any experience with Poly Glow? I am thinking about giving it a try on my 86 Glastron. The blue of my boat has lost quite a bit of shine and is quite oxidized.

Thanks!
Kelley

I just came across this. It is a pretty impressive follow-up review.

I did not use poliglow but did use a product just like it and have heard that poliglow is even better. For older boat which waxing and buffing only seem to last a month then the oxidation shows back up this stuff is great. It will bring the color back and will last a good year before you have to add another coat or two. The hardest part is getting the boat very clean as it will seal in any stains left on the glass. Its a little bit $ but I will guaranty that you will be completely satisfied and if you do get the stuff try and post a before and after pic.

It looks like people have been pretty happy with it. If/when I try this, I will be sure to take some pics.

Use a product call Vertglas by lovett Marire......

is works great........

Get the kit..... it is very easy to use.....



one thing.... make sure you take your time doing the prep work.... "step #1"..... you might have to redo "step #1" a few time to remove all chalk/oxy off the boat.

This is the stuff I used and talked about in my prior post it works great and you won't go back to waxing. One other thing is buy a 10" and a 4' brush as it will speed up the job.

I used it on my last boat, 86' Aquasport, it worked really well. It goes on easy and fast. They say it lasts about a year, on my Aquasport it lasted about three. I plan on using it on the Sabalo next time I bring it home for service.

Thanks for all the replies. I just noticed that the link above I posted didn't work. Here is a corrected link:
http://www.poliglow-int.com/images/h...rer_update.pdf

You will notice that according to this review, Poli Glow was the best. Even beat out Vertglas.

Thanks for the responses!

Why would you say that??? I guess everyone has a right to believe what they want, but I am here one day and already feel unwelcome. It's too bad, it seemed like a good place. I am also not sure what the link to my profile is supposed to prove? I asked where to find Vinyl Boat buttons and how to paint my seats. I would also like to make the outside of the boat look good. I got a great deal on a boat that just needs a little TLC and I am trying to clean up and make this boat look as nice a possible on a budget. I guess this isn't the forum to try and do that.

Thanks for making the new guy feel welcome....

Default Development of blotching

I applied a Polyglow system in May 2015 to my 89 42 ft Carver. I was careful to follow all prep instructions. I did the below rub rail area first and then ordered a second lot to coat above rail.

Initially the boat looked great however after 6 months the above rub rail area started to develop what can best be discribed as a blotchy or storm cloud like grey appearance under the coating. The problem continues to spread throughout the above rail area. The area below the rub rail area continues to look great. I have tried to strip a test area and remove this appearance with no success. Has anyone else had this experience.

I used it several years ago and it lasted a good long time, even now the sides are nowhere as bad it was before I used the product.

I definitely recommend it. Cheaper and easier than re-gel coat or wax/polish.
