Default Starbrite Premium Cleaner Wax with PTEF

Well I figure if I cant use it I might as well polish it. I was supposed to get out today my crew called last night and told me it's a no go (what else is new) Could have gone with my wife to pick up my mother in law from Staten Island or I could clean the boat tough choice . I have started seeing some very faint black streaks I guess from the rub rail. Nobody would notice them except me. So I decide they are unwelcome and need to go. I bought a bottle of Starbrite Premium Cleaner Wax with PTEF. Started applying it with a soft pad no hard rubbing hazed up and took it off with a orbital buffer (I'm lazy), did the entire hull in about 1 hour. Boat looks great. Thank you Bill at Starbrite another great product. Like being back in the Navy "if it doesn't move paint it" in this case polish it.

A lot of folks like that stuff. It didn't work for me at all. I still have the almost full bottle.

It comes in a paste wax as well. Tried the paste wax for the first time this year and like it better than the liquid wax.

I have always had good results from Starbrite products and use Startron with every tank.

"If it doesn't move...paint it". I forgot that old saying and how true it is. I was in the NAV on a destroyer. But remember, before you paint it, if it's steel hit it with "red lead" first, if it's aluminum apply "zinc chromate" before the paint. I spent a few months as a deck ape in 1st DIV and then was trained as a boat coxswain and took over the Commodore's Barge. Much better duty and no more deck crawling and painting. What really prompted me to change billets was the day I was over the side on a stage painting the hull and found it very challenging to dodge the "goldfish" that constantly flew out of the side of the ship.

I like Starbright also. But for a quick and dirty job I find the automotive product Nufinish to be excellent. Very fast and easy.

Jack,
I spent my time under (USS corporal ss346 "what goes up must come down, what goes down does NOT have to come back up") we did not do any painting except in the yards even then the yard boys did it. Did have the extreme pleasure of diving #2 sanitary. Got 3 days basket leave for it.

That's really funny. I believe that would have something to do with gravity. Only three days leave for the tank dive? I thought I had it bad. When were you in?

I've "tested" a few in the past year - did two different waxes on my Bertram 28 - 1986 model that had some oxidation. In the spring I used rejex one side and leverage on the other side - when I went to rewax this weekend - the rejex held up well - the leverage I had to restrip with a buffer. At the recommendation of a local guy I used collanite fleetwax - we'll see how it lasts.

Based on the "recommendations" on this forum, I tried it. Used their cleaner, then the cleaner wax. Comparison with good wax (Colonite Fleet wax)--the Fleet wax won, and will continue to be my primary product. (yes I put on the second coat of the Starbrite product with PTEF.)
