Default Wash and Wax recommendations

Anyone ever use these wash and wax boat cleaners? Are they any good?

Getting the boat waxed is pricey and I'm not a big fan of spending an entire day buffing the boat myself.

I clean it every time I use it with boat wash but it's loosing its shine and fish blood sticks to the fiberglass a lot more. Wondering if I used the combo each time if it will work.

I have been wiping the boat with wax as you dry for the last few years. Good results and keeps things clean enough.

Price jumped recently so going to switch to Wash All UV wax spray. gallon on Amazon is $27.

Takes 5min for 2 people to do a quick wipe down at the ramp. Once or twice a year the boat gets run through the carwash (pressure washer).

Haven't buffed and waxed in 3 years. Boat still looks good but I noticed this year the waterline is starting the yellow. Might have to break down and do a full polish/wax this winter.

On the water I keep a wet microfiber cloth around and quickly wipe up any blood/slime so it doesnt dry. Though I'm inshore and do not tend to have a large volume of blood on deck.

I use chemical guys boat wash and wax combo and it works pretty well. You can definitely feel the wax coating after it dries. It keeps the boat clean for longer than normal boat soap from what I have found and is a hell of a lot easier than waxing it properly!
