1) Our Pro Polish is going to be my recommendation. No talc powder, a quick cure time, and long lasting protection.

2) The 1# thing, by far, to prevent water spots is to dry the hull after the wash. Hard water leaves mineral deposits on the hull, which are your waterspots. Once dried, they are hard to remove. It's a pain, but that's the only way to keep those spots from forming.

there are multiple water systems that you can just hook up to your hose/faucet. I am also looking for less work when cleaning the boat and removing spots as well as salt.

spot free is one....many others work similar.

Dish washer detergents say they dry spot free. Try one of them.

No....they may strip your wax and then the sun will eat it up in days/weeks
