Default What's the best fiberglass boat wax?

Pulled the trigger and bought a new boat this weekend. Wanted to ask around and see what you guys are using to keep your boats looking good!!

Collinite 970 lasts for the entire new jersey summer. Difficult to buff off, but worth the shine.

Your going to get about 50 different people telling you about 50 different products. I would say to get a good buffer.

Rejex. Not a wax but is some amazing stuff. I only started using it last year and it made the 13yr old light blue Regulator look like new and for a long time.
I'm currently test it vs Starbrite Polish vs wax on my WorldCat.

Very easy if the boat is new. http://www.meguiars.com/en/marine/pr...rine-wax-32oz/

I have two boats which I bought new. A 2002 and a 2004 and this is all I have used. Just apply twice a year and you are done.

If you have a white boat I would stick with a "white" wax and/or polish.

I've seen some of the brown and green waxes leave behind a brown or green color.
