Recommendations for brand new boat
I'm looking to purchase a brand new boat, and I want to make sure it is protected from the very start. What do you guys recommend here? My initial thought is to just do a water bead test, and if it looks protected already I can just wait and follow-up on another protection layer down the road. Still, I'm wondering if it might have a carnauba wax seal on it such that I might still want to lightly compound it before applying Pro Polish. What do you think? Thanks!

First, I'm sorry it took me so long to reply to this. I was helping the Shurhold family on their annual Bahamas and trip and had pretty rough internet acess for the past few weeks. As for your potentially new boat, most boats are not shipped/sold with any form of wax or protective coating. That is usually the owners responsibility to arrage or DIY. I usually recommend using Pro Polish every few months. Fortuntaly, your boat should have no oxidation or damage, so the wax will do a great job of keeping it looking brand new!

No worries, Sam. And thanks for the response. I hope the Bahamas trip was a success!

Sam, just found this thread and glad I did. I'm getting a new boat delivered soon and plan to use Shurhold products to maintain the fiberglass finish. I'm planning to purchase the Shurhold Dual Action Buffer, which apparently comes with a bonus Bonnet, along with the Soft Brush and some Pro Polish. From your videos it appears the Soft Brush is used to apply the Pro Polish to the non-skid surfaces, and the Bonnet can then be used to remove the excess / buff it in. And I believe for the rest of the fiberglass I need the Polishing Pad for applying the Pro Polish, and again use the Bonnet for removing excess/ buffing it in. What more do I need at this point, if anything?

The only thing I would add to that supply list would be a few microfiber towels to remove any excess Pro Polish that the Brite Bonnet does not remove/ misses. Other than that, it sounds like your good to go!
