Cobia, I have been able to get surface specks of mildew off the silicone seams in my Edgewater's deck. These stains are on the surface of the silicone.

Is there a reason why the Brunswick, GA Academy store doesn't carry your Starbrite Salt Off products?
I'm waiting for an answer from the store as well. They carry several other Starbrite products but not Salt Off.

They should have it and they can 100% order it for you. Talk to the manager. .

I used that Orange cleaner from Star brite..and that stuff is POWERFUL !
I forgot the exact name...but it works ! I think it was just the boat wash.

It did, however burn my girlfriend's bare legs when she got some on them. I just told her to apply it on the BOAT and not herself.

Huge fan of the deck cleaner. Yesterday, I applied some hull wax, the liquid wipe on/wipe off kind. I noticed that I've got a lot of "water spot" looking imperfections in my gel coat. It isn't salt but kind of reminds me of that look. Do you have a recommendation for getting rid of these spots?

A spray detailer might be "locking in" water spots or other schmutz
Once per year, I use Instant Hull Cleaner to get the f/g stripped of all polish (or wax) and then apply the Premium Marine Polish

Default Help for "null " colored Starcraft Boat

Bought boat in spring when we still has snow on the ground and waxing was not even on my mind but it is now. The black is a flat black
I contacted dealer and received this and I am having a hellova time attaching to here....I'm sorry.

Here is a picture of the boat and when I had my Sea Ray we swore by your products and would still like to. Thank you in advance.




Subject:
Flat paint care
There are very different techniques involved in keeping flat paint looking good as
compared to a shiny finish. First of all, forget about using wax, detail spray, ArmorAll or
almost any run
-
of
-
the
-
mill products. Everything
needs to be matte paint saf
e, including the
cloth you use, and even the buckets!
N
othing
abrasive can come into play like polishes or
glazes
, brushes, old towels etc
.
Cleaning C
hemicals:
Use an alcohol
-
based window cleaner, or even just a 50/50 mix of a
lcohol and deionized water to
spot clean pesky bug guts.
Always use Matte paint specific products from companies like Dr.
Beasleys, Chemical Guys or Mequireís.
Spray detailers, like
Meguireís
Ultimate Quik Detailer
(G144)
, Gold Class Premium Quik Detailer (G76),
Final Inspection (M34)
and
Last Touch (D155)
are safe to use and will work great to remove light dust, fingerprints, fresh bird droppings etc.
Cleaning
C
loths:
A
lways u
se p
remium microfiber wash mitts and premium microfiber drying cloths. Poor quality,
dirty toweling will create swirls and scratches that canít be removed from a matte finish.
Buckets:
Because matte paint is so sensitive, itís especially important to put a
grit guard in your soap pale.
Itís just a gridded plastic piece that lets
abrasive dirt settle and stay in the bucket rather than riding
on your
microfiber mitt
.
You will need
two buckets of water, one with soap and the other with
clean water

PRE RINSE:
Once this is all in place, pre
-
rinse your boat, preferably with a fan
-
tipped pressure washer under
2,500 psi.
Donít get too close with the spray tip or the paint can be damaged.
VERY IMPORTANT
: Work from bottom to top in sections.
Failure to work from bottom to top can
lead to vertical streaks that are very difficult if not impossible to get rid of
.
WASHING
:
Wash your boat in the shade with two buckets of water, one with soap and the other with clean
water
. Rinse the mitt in the c
lear water and dunk it in the soapy water bucket before going back to
the boat.
R
ubbing in circles will leave swirls that look terrible in direct light.
Once thatís done, rinse the
boat
,
dry it with a damp chamois and repeat if needed.
SPOT CLEANING:
Spray
the spot and wet your microfiber cloth then let the spot soak so it softens. Donít skip
soaking the cloth, using it dry will damage the finish irreparably and itís going to leave shiny spots
that look horribly obvious. We suggest saturating a cloth with t
ar remover and laying it over any
stuck
-
on debris for five minutes to ensure safe removal.
PAINT PROTECTION:
Always
use
Flat/
Matte paint
specific
products from Dr. Beasleys, Chemical guys,
or
Mequires
to
add protection without changing appearance of the
matte finish.

^ so you came to the Star brite section to promote other brands?
Matte boats are a very rare breed which is why you will have better luck using automotive products. Our powersports product line includes a spray detailer for matte finish bikes, btw.

WOW!
I Didn't know you owned this section but I will remove. I'm a GENTLEMAN that helps and assists others but obviously you have no business sense.
