Default Beginner's questions

A few beginner's questions:
1. Before using Buff Magic should the boat be washed with Dawn detergent to remove the wax?
2. When using Buff Magic at the water line can blue painters tape be used to mask the bottom paint? Does Shurhold have a better method?
3. After using Pro Polish should a wax be used? or is the Pro Polish sufficient?

Thanks for your help.

Jim,

First off sorry it took so long to get back to you. Below are the answers to your questions. If I can help you with anything else, let me know.

1. Before using Buff Magic should the boat be washed with Dawn detergent to remove the wax?
Buff Magic will strip the wax on your boat, so pre-cleaning with dawn is unnecessary. That said, you don't want your boat to be covered in dirt and dust before you start. It's best to compound on a clean surface.

2. When using Buff Magic at the water line can blue painters tape be used to mask the bottom paint? Does Shurhold have a better method?
Blue Painters Tape will work just fine. No secrets here.

3. After using Pro Polish should a wax be used? or is the Pro Polish sufficient?

Pro Polish is a synthetic polymer based wax. It will protect your surface just like traditional waxes.The difference is the bonding process. There is no need to apply additional waxes to your boat after using Pro Polish.
